When a product triggers a customer complaint, the devicemaker responds pronto. The i’s are dotted and the t’s crossed. The manufactures thinks it’s made all the right moves, but chances are … it hasn’t.

Worse, the company may inadvertently be exposed to sanctions. Penalty letters … design changes … new UDI-DI … correction/removal … new 510(k) … all are possible.

Regardless of where the operation is based — the U.S., the EU or Canada — the problems are the same. If the company quietly changes even one long-standing practice and presto, it finds itself facing a punishing sanction.

Device manufacturers need a system. They need a plan. They need:

Medical Device Complaint Management:
Building a Robust System to Meet Global Requirements

Mark the calendar for Boston in March, when FDAnews and Ombu Enterprises host an all-new two-day workshop that’ll transform a device company into a well-oiled complaint management machine.

Attendees start with a hypothetical complaint, then trace it through the regulatory system. First come lectures, then interactive exercises — 11 of them over two days. Attendees will find themselves out of the chair and engaging with devicemakers like them — from the E.U., Canada and all across the U.S. — confronting and solving shared problems.

At the conclusion of each small-group exercise, attendees take a test. But not to worry — they can’t fail. Answers will be provided, plus proven solutions to take home and apply. There is no other workshop providing such fine-grained level of interactivity, not to mention solutions device manufacturers can put into effect — at once.

The workshop mentor is Dan O’Leary, a 30-year veteran of device quality compliance and five-star presenter. Mr. O’Leary is a master at working with devicemakers large and small to apply proven methods that build end-to-end complaint management systems.

Here’s just a taste of topics covered:

  •     The role of Unique Device Identification (UDI) in complaints and adverse event reporting
  •     Regulatory reporting requirements in three major markets: U.S., EU, Canada
  •     Understanding why the complaint source (Facebook, Twitter, email, phone call) is not the chief concern — it’s how the communication is handled
  •     Proper use of corrective action in complaint management, including statistical analysis
  •     Developing a complaint classification system that links to the risk management file
  •     Analysis methods to determine impact of design changes on regulatory requirements
  •     Planning field actions and making regulatory reports
  •     And much more
In this fast-changing world, facing multiple regulatory bodies with complex and ever-changing rules, an effective complaint management program is a must. Don’t let an inefficient, outmoded complaint management system bring the company down — not when help is at hand. Sign up now.
