Why Should You Attend:

Verification and Validation are required as part of 21 CFR § 820.30. A review of recent FDA 483 observations indicates that
a number of observations documented deficiencies in design verification and design validation. By learning from other
firm’s mistakes and instituting a sound verification & validation strategy, along with proper verification and validation
planning, these types of observations can be prevented.

There is a wide variation of how the medical device industry manages requirements. This presentation will cover a
requirements management approach consistent with the CMMi Requirements Management KPA, that helps companies
meet Design Control requirements. The presentation will show how the Requirements Management Specific Goals satisfy
Design Control requirements. Specific Goals to be reviewed are:

We will cover key considerations and best practices when performing design verification and design validation of medi-
cal devices.It is intended to give the attendees key knowledge in areas that are repeatedly cited in FDA 483s. The
presentation will cover verification and validation related observations including,

•   Failure to conduct design validation using production units or their equivalents
•   Failure of the verification testing to confirm that the design outputs meet the design input requirements
•   Failure to ensure that design testing is conducted under actual or simulated use conditions
•   Failure to maintain written design testing results
