The medical device industry has built-in quality systems which are based on Good Manufacturing Practices or GMPs. The regulatory bodies governing these systems are different in the EU and the US. In the USA, Center for Devices and Radiological Health (CDRG), FDA primarily regulates medical devices and FDA itself conducts all regulatory inspections. The US FDA has also laid down GMP compliance requirements for development, manufacturing, and distribution of medical devices in the Code of Federal Regulations: 21 CFR, Part 820.

In this course, we provide a comparative synthesis of the topic through an interactive online experience. It applies to all areas of GMP for Medical Devices and provides adequate training with regards to quality management and GMP compliance in the medical device manufacturing industry. This material was built by a team of Regulatory Affairs Experts with a Qualification from Northeastern University, Boston, piloted by a Senior Member able to articulate theory with practice.
