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 workshops and exercises, participants apply the MDSAP process-based audit approach– including the scoring system that Auditing Organizations (AOs) will use during certification audits. Participants in this class gain additional insight from case studies that share best practices and include practical examples gathered from our customers who have successfully passed their MDSAP certification audits.

Virtual Session Details

The learning objectives and topics covered during virtual instructor-led training (VILT) are the same as those for the in-person version of the course. As well, all VILT classes are taught by the same experienced team of instructors you’ve come to expect from Oriel STAT A MATRIX. To accommodate the VILT format, classes are delivered at a pace well suited to virtual instruction, and the structure of class workshops and exercises has been modified to work best in the virtual environment. Each virtual session is a combination of subject matter expert and group discussions, interactive whiteboards, polls, and chat rooms that help students with small group exercises, making this an engaging, interactive learning experience.

Online Training Schedule
