Secrets to Writing Effective SOPs for Medical Device QMS - By Compliance Global Inc

10 August 2016 01:00-02:30, United Kingdom


Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) are a critical ingredient in an effective and efficient Quality Management System. SOPs are typically one of the first things an investigator asks for in an inspection.   

Well written SOPs send a message to the FDA and Notified Bodies that your QMS is complete, accurate, and followed. More importantly, well written SOPs ensure that your personnel can consistently and accurately follow your processes resulting in correct outcomes and quality work.  

Well written SOPs ensure that your employees understand and consistently follow processes.
