This webinar will help you better understand test method validations to verify the performance of a Medical Device, global reference standards, the FDA requirements and how to perform successful TMV to ensure your inspection of verification is effective, using detailed real-life case studies.
Test method validation is an often-confusing requirement for medical devices. A fundamental issue is the role-reversal between the test method and the product or process it is designed to detect. Although the FDA provides guidance on method validation, the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Title 21 Part 820: Quality System Regulation (QSR) 21 does not specifically broach the topic of method validation. It alludes to it in equipment qualification, statistical methods, process validation, design controls, and other sections. In numerous warning letters, we have witnessed significant importance of method validation as an applicable medical device validation activity.
Attend this webinar to understand when the method to be validated, validation vs qualification and all FDA requirements of test method validation and most importantly how to perform test method validation and ensure your inspection of verification is effective.
