Medical Device Quality Management Systems (QMS)

Key requirements in ISO 13485, MDR *, and QSReg **

*MDR - EU Medical Device Regulation **QSReg - US Medical Device Regulation 21 CFR 820

During this three day course you will get a good insight and understanding of the key requirements that shall be fulfilled to establish and maintain a quality management system in compliance with EU and US Medical Device regulations.

Course description:

The course provides practical guidance on how to implement the requirements in your quality management system and how to deal with critical elements of the quality management system such as; design control (product development), manufacturing, validation, management responsibilities, handling of resources, internal audits, change control, post market surveillance and CAPA management.

During the course you will also get a thorough understanding of the major changes in the newly updated ISO 13485:2016, as compared to the 2003/2012 version and its relation to the new Medical Device regulations (MDR/IVDR).

Learning objectives:

Participants will learn how to effectively implement a quality management system in line with the requirements in QSReg, ISO 13485:2016, MDR and IVDR. Completion of this program will give you the knowledge needed to establish and implement a new quality management system or assess your current quality management system and implement improvements where needed.

For further professional development this course may be combined with any of our two advanced courses to become “Auditor/Lead Auditor Pharmaceuticals and Medical Devices” (#5316) or “QA-RA Leader Medical Devices” (#5317).
