This intensive 3 – day course provides complete coverage of design control requirements for FDA Quality System Regulation, ANSI/AAMI/ISO 13485:2016, and the Medical Device Single Audit Program (MDSAP). With the participation of FDA representatives during the entire course, attendees have the unique opportunity to participate in a shared learning experience.


Upon completing this course, participants will be equipped with the information to able to evaluate the degree of compliance of a design control system, including identification of noncompliance issues, and be prepared to implement the improvements needed to meet requirements.
This highly interactive course engages the learner with in-depth discussion of industry best practices to learn how industry leaders address design control challenges. Exercises are designed to build a solid understanding for developing and applying design control requirements. Attendees will participate in structured discussions with their peers to develop solutions to solve current issues.
Examples of design control tools, templates, and practices, in use by medical device companies, stimulate discussion and provide a practical resource for future reference. Case studies and situation analyses are used throughout the program to help participants analyze potential areas of noncompliance, identify improvements, and evaluate the various methods of managing a design control program.
Course content is the culmination of years of consensus development on the part of a respected group of quality system experts from leading device manufacturing companies, FDA, and industry consultants.
