This DHF regulatory compliance training will discuss the structure of a good Design History File, elements to look for when auditing a DHF and how to address issues. It will provide the information necessary to maintain a good DHF that will help manufacturers during a regulatory compliance audit.
Why Should You Attend:
A Design History File (DHF) is a requirement of QSR 21 CFR Part 820. It is a certainty that in an audit from a regulatory body, information from the DHF will need to be provided. Manufacturer's would be well prepared for audits by regulatory agencies if they know the strengths and weaknesses of their DHF, and remediate as needed, prior to the agency showing up at their doorstep. Virtually every section of the design control requirements specifies information which should be found in the DHF. Manufacturer's need to be aware of what gaps exists between the actual DHF and the FDA's expectation.
This webinar will cover the basics on how to maintain a good design history file that will help a manufacturer in a regulatory compliance audit. The webinar will cover the structure of a DHF and steps to take to ensure that the DHF is completed as the design and development process progresses. Additionally, the DHF needs to be maintained as design changes are performed. Information in the DHF can help facilitate design decisions, which often can affect the safety of the device. The DHF provides the knowledge base needed for the manufacturer to maintain the device. It also provides the secrets to a successful Design Control audit.
