Get Ready for the Medical Device Single Audit Program

Alex Butler, medical device segment manager at MasterControl, and Linda Chatwin, senior consultant, Emergo, a UL Company, will be featured in a new webinar titled “Exploring the Medical Device Single Audit Program (MDSAP).” The webinar will take place from 1:00-2:30 pm ET on October 19, 2017. The webinar is hosted by The Advanced Medical Technology Association (AdvaMed). To register for the webinar, please visit https://www.advamed.org/events/exploring-mdsap .

The MDSAP represents a significant change for medical device companies seeking to prove regulatory compliance from international regulatory authorities. It allows medical device manufacturers to be audited just once for compliance with the standard and regulatory requirements of up to five different medical device markets: Australia, Brazil, Canada, Japan and the United States.

“MDSAP provides a time-saving solution for medical device companies seeking to audit against various regulatory requirements by taking an ‘all-in-one’ approach,” Butler said. “Those in the medical device industry must become educated and proactive as they prepare to open their doors to auditing organizations. This webinar will highlight the opportunities the MDSAP will bring to companies and explain how to take advantage of the new program.”

Many medical device companies plan to participate in the MDSAP in cooperation with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). According to www.fda.gov , “FDA will continue to accept MDSAP audit reports as a substitute for routine Agency inspections.”

“For the last several years, the International Medical Device Regulators Forum (IMDRF) has commanded the work to create a framework that provides a standardized, internationally acceptable approach to auditing and monitoring medical device manufacturing,” Chatwin said. “There are significant benefits to having a single audit on a predictable timetable that is acceptable by multiple regulatory bodies, not least of which are potentially lower costs, improved quality systems and faster times to market.”

This webinar will explore the issues, challenges and benefits that surround the MDSAP. Butler and Chatwin will provide insight and conversation into how medical device companies can access the highest level of benefits via the program.
