Calibration Requirements and Equipment Controls for
Medical Devices

Avoid common pitfalls related to calibration requirements and equipment controls.

Both the FDA and ISO 13485 require medical device manufacturers to calibrate equipment. Medical device manufacturing depends on accurate testing and inspection results, from the initial design and development of a device to the shipment of a safe, effective product. Companies must also test the materials they use to manufacture a device to ensure that they are appropriate for the specific product.

In addition, companies must perform other manufacturing activities to a high degree of reliability, including design and process validation activities, assessment of material biocompatibility, packaging studies, sterilization validation, and electrical performance testing.

Properly calibrated measuring and monitoring equipment is required to perform all of these tests accurately. For this reason, haphazard or inconsistent calibration activities are a red flag to regulatory bodies.

This practical course will show you how to interpret and apply the calibration requirements and equipment controls for medical device manufacturers, and it will help you understand what compliance means for your organization. You will learn how to avoid common issues related to calibration and equipment controls, so your organization can rely on accurate test results.
