Course Description:

Global Medical Device Regulations continue to evolve, as devices become more diverse and sophisticated. Understanding the regulations and requirements in your targeted markets will expedite speed-to-market of innovative products and assist patients needing access to life-saving products and technologies. Government Regulatory Authorities, needing to become more efficient with their time, are looking for ways to better use their internal resources without compromising safety in products, which become marketable. One such example is the Medical Device Single Audit Program [MDSAP], where Authorized Organizations would be allowed to carry out a single GMP audit on medical device manufacturing facilities and have it stand to support registrations across the current participating member countries: U.S. Canada, Brazil, Australia and Japan.

This two-day seminar is focused on understanding the Medical Device Single Audit Program, the scope of the program, how to apply, the Authorized Organizations, the rating system developed and what you can expect when signing onto the program. The seminar will discuss how such audits are organized, what to expect during a MDSAP audit, how does this differ from a typical certified body audit, along with document movement and timeline expectations in receiving the facility’s certificate.

The key Regulatory Requirements for Medical Devices will also be covered for the participating MDSAP Countries of: U.S., Canada, Brazil, Australia and Japan.

Learning Objectives:

  • The Medical Device Single Audit Program (MDSAP)
  • Device Classification
  • Licensing Pathways
  • Medical Device GMP
  • Inspections
  • Device Labeling
  • License Holder Responsibilities
  • Timelines and Fees
  • Country Specific Cultural Considerations and Challenges
  • Adverse Event Reporting

Who Will Benefit:

This two-day seminar will provide invaluable assistance to all personnel in the Medical Device industry, who have a stake in expanding their business into a MDSAP participating country and for those interested in more information about MDSAP and how it may apply to them.
