Medical Device Change Control

29-30 August 2022

2 full days

Remote Online Training

8.30am – 5.30pm


Change is an inherent part of the lifecycle of a medical device. It can affect all aspects of Current Good Manufacturing Practice (CGMP), from research and development to production and supply. Change management is a concept that ensures change is implemented in compliance with quality and regulatory requirements. Change Control ensures that device modifications, manufacturing process changes, and supplier changes within the scope of your company’s quality management system are planned, approved and implemented in a controlled manner, maintaining the safety and efficacy of product and the effectiveness of the quality management system.

The course provides participants with an overview of the medical device change control and regulatory and quality management system (QMS) compliance. The participants will learn the elements of change control, change control master plan, risk management and the challenges in medical device change control process
