11:15-11:50: EU MDR, Eudamed and Associated Requirements as They Relate to Labeling Challenges
11:50-12:00: Final questions and wrap-up.
The regulatory requirements for implementing eIFU
Many manufacturers are investigating the possibility of replacing their paper “Instructions For Use” by an electronic alternative “eIFU” available over the Internet. Such a web-based solution has many advantages, but it is challenging to comply with all regulatory requirements and its impact on internal processes.
Mr. Maurizio Suppo, Ph.D., will introduce you to the applicable regulations.
Packaging and CAPA: Interpreting regulations as they relate to package engineering through the lens of CAPA, and the guidance from applying DMAIC methodologies.
This presentation will utilize real cases as the audience takes a journey through DMAIC methodology as it relates to CAPA and subsequently through each CAPA phase (Investigation, Implementation, and Control) activities. The presentation will touch base on key definitions, how to properly define and scope a CAPA, as well as how to utilize various root cause analysis tools and apply them to packaging corrective action and/or preventative actions. The presentation will also provide perspective demonstrating how packaging fits within a medical device manufacturers quality management system.
Mr. Elon Goldbaum, will walk you through the process.
EU MDR, Eudamed and Associated Requirements as They Relate to Labeling Challenges
The EU MDR, Eudamed and their associated requirements present some unique challenges for labeling. These challenges primarily center around the increasing amount of data required for labels & UDI. Yet all challenges can be helped by creating a “single source of truth” through MDM architecture that enables continuous system expansion. MDM mapping with different regulatory systems worldwide rounds out the picture.
Mr. Ardi Batmanghelidj, will discuss UDI-MDR requirements.
