About the Conference:

In order to ensure the highest quality devices, medical device manufacturers must assess each supplier based on a determined level of risk and qualify parts prior to procurement. Due to a variety of suppliers, such as component suppliers, software suppliers, and chemical suppliers, OEMs operate a robust and thorough supplier management program to consistently validate processes and ensure compliance with regulatory requirements. Regulations and standards such as EU MDR, MDSAP, and ISO 13485:2016 are ranked as most important for supplier quality teams due to increased expectations and challenging requirements.

Core Topics to be Addressed:

  • Assessing overall risk of critical vs. non-critical suppliers
  • Comprehensive approaches to validating supplier processes
  • Current status of the Medical Device Single Audit Program
  • Establishing purchasing controls compliant with ISO 13485
  • Practices to effectively manage a portfolio of various suppliers
