Medical Device Single Audit Program (MDSAP) Training: Preparing for a Successful Implementation

The Medical Device Single Audit Program (MDSAP) allows medical device manufacturers to consolidate compliance audits from five separate markets or Regulatory Authorities (RAs) with a single audit. Currently, Australia, Brazil, Canada, Japan, and the United States are participating in the program – with Health Canada requiring MDSAP certification.

Our course provides a solid understanding of the MDSAP program, what to expect during an MDSAP audit, and the key regulatory requirements for MDSAP-participating countries. Through interactive discussions and exercises, participants apply the MDSAP process-based audit approach– including the nonconformity grading system that Auditing Organizations (AOs) will use during certification audits. Participants in this class gain additional insight from best practices and practical examples gathered from our customers who have successfully passed their MDSAP certification audits.
