Medical Device Supplier Quality Management Training

Can't travel? This class is available as a online, virtual seminar!

Updated to reflect new EU and MDSAP requirements for effective supplier management.

Poorly designed and executed supplier quality management systems can cost your company millions. With dozens or hundreds of suppliers to manage, you need a proven risk-based process that meets FDA and ISO 13485:2016 requirements, plus new mandates found in the EU Medical Device Regulation (MDR 2017/745). On paper, the requirements seem straightforward, but applying them can get tricky.

You’ll walk away from this 3-day training with a clear understanding of the various regulatory requirements and how to establish an effective and efficient system using a risk-based approach.

Upcoming Dates and Locations

Virtual seminars run as 1/2-day sessions. In-person classes run as full-day sessions. See the virtual session daily class times.
