11. Course #612: Design Control Requirements
This course focusing on the Quality System Regulation will provide a practical understanding of medical device Design Control, with:
· A discussion of the regulatory requirements for design control, and why the FDA and Notified Bodies require it.
· A comparison will be made between the design control requirements of ISO9001:2000, 21CFR820 and the new 13485:2003.
· You will create a list of design activities during a workshop, then fit them into the design control stages:
o Concept phase (design Input), before development starts, then the
o Development phase, which includes Design Output, Design Control of documents produced during the development phase,
o Design Verification (assurance that the device was designed according to the Design Input, and each phase output matches the requirements of the previous phase),
o Design Validation (assurance that the device was actually what the customer base wanted), and finally
o Design Transfer (assurance that all design phases were completed, along with all remaining action items), and
o Discussion of the Design History File, Dossier, and Technical File.
· Elements of Risk Management and Human Factors, now required in all design phases will be briefly discussed.
· A discussion of pro’s and con’s of Contract Design and how to manage it, from the twinkling of an eye to completion.
· A brief discussion of how the FDA sees design control from an auditing standpoint (QSIT).
· A description of the concept and use of a Trace Matrix, to make your life easier during the design project.
· Template SOP’s for all phases of design control will be presented as resources.
· A CD with more than 30 public domain and created references for design control helps and discussion.
· A Binder with almost 200 pages of materials to be used in and out of the class.
· This course will have several mini-workshops, in several phases as mock medical device concepts will be taken through the complete design control process.
