As an experienced FDA medical device investigator, many firms have failed to fully incorporate the requirements of 21 CFR 803 when establishing and implementing their reporting procedures.

This webinar will assist the medial device manufacturer with determining what FDA requirements must be incorporated into the procedures and the definitions of various terminology used in the regulation. The decision making process as to when a Medical Device Report (MDR) must be filed is the single most area where device firms fails to make rational or informed decisions.

Why should you Attend: Medical Device manufacturers are aware that if an end user reports an injury to them purported to be the result of a malfunction of their device, that they must report this incident with FDA.
