Course Description:
If there’s a problem with a device, where do you draw the line between a routine servicing issue and a “risk to health” you must report to CDRH?

With the FDA cracking down on so-called silent recalls, making the wrong decision can lead straight to 483s, warning letters and even product seizures. In fact, CDRH warns devicemakers that something as simple as sending out a patch to fix a software glitch can be viewed as a reportable event.

If your medical device develops a problem, you need know how to determine if it’s a “risk to health” to avoid an already costly issue from escalating into a regulatory nightmare.

Head off 483s, Warning Letters and Product Seizures
Nearly every device maker eventually encounters a serious product problem — and FDA inspectors will be on the lookout for “silent recalls” as never before.
