This webinar by Ms. Rita Hoffman, formerly FDA’s Branch Chief for CDRH Recalls, will cover FDA's expectations for a company conducting a recall and discuss the regulations which apply and provide guidance for if, when, and how a firm should prepare for and conduct a device recall.

Why Should You Attend:

When an FDA-regulated product is either defective or potentially harmful, recalling that product by implementing a compliant and effective recall program, that includes removing it from the market or correcting the problem, is the most effective means for protecting the public.
