Webinar on Purchasing and Supplier Controls in the Medical Device Industry

Overview:

This presentation will review the QSR and ISO requirements for supplier evaluation and assessment, and provide cost efficient, equally compliant options to many of the most common practices.

Supplier qualification and assessment is required in both the QSR regulations and ISO standards. Many companies spend a great deal of time and money in pursuit of compliance with this. Many companies can spend MUCH LESS time and money, and still be in control of their suppliers and in compliance with the regulations.

Why you should attend:

A lack of adequate control over purchases has resulted in a significant number of recalls due to component failures. Since FDA cannot regulate component suppliers, it is imperative that your company's purchasing and supplier control requirements provide the assurance that only acceptable components are used to manufacture finished devices. Most medical device manufacturers have acceptable systems in place to assure component quality. But what about supplier quality? Your company must have a procedure in place that describes the methods you use to evaluate potential suppliers, and set forth requirements that your suppliers must meet to be considered "approved." You must also have a system in place to routinely assess your suppliers, and set forth the applicable criteria they must meet to remain "approved." You never have to pay a visit to your supplier if you have a great supplier control program in place.
