Quality In, Quality Out: Regulatory Drivers of Supplier Quality Management in the Medical Device Industry
Toronto, Ontario, CANADA -- July 26, 2018 -- Join industry expert Phil Johnson, Senior Director of Quality and Compliance Services at IQVIA, for a live webinar on Wednesday, Aug. 15, 2018, at 10 a.m. EDT (3 p.m. BST/UK).
The supplier pyramid is more complex in MedTech than in the pharmaceutical arena, often with a multi-level supply chain providing parts that feed up into the finished device. It is the organization at the end of this chain (who is considered the legal manufacturer, or specification developer) that registers the resulting device and places the device on the market. It is also this organization that the regulators hold responsible for safety issues in the field. Therefore, it is critical that this organization is aware of and abides by all the applicable regulations.
