Topic Background

A lack of adequate control over purchases has resulted in a significant number of recalls due to component failures. Since FDA cannot regulate component suppliers, it is imperative that your company's purchasing and supplier control requirements provide the assurance that only acceptable components are used to manufacture finished devices. Most medical device manufacturers have acceptable systems in place to assure component quality.


But what about supplier quality? Your company must have a procedure in place that describes the methods you use to evaluate potential suppliers, and set forth requirements that your suppliers must meet to be considered 'approved.' You must also have a system in place to routinely assess your suppliers and set forth the applicable criteria they must meet to remain 'approved.' You never have to pay a visit to your supplier if you have a great supplier control program in place.


 

Why Should you Attend
Inadequate supplier/purchasing control can lead to a multitude of problems including rejections or delays at receiving inspection; non-conformances and scrap on your manufacturing lines; and quality problems that can manifest later in the field resulting in MDRs and recalls.

Purchasing Controls have received significant scrutiny from the FDA in recent years due to an increase in adverse events and recalls. Purchasing Controls continue to be a leading source of 483 and Warning Letter citations.
