Medical Device Validation Template


Medical Device Validation Rationale.

The Medical Device Validation Template must define & verify; boundaries, responsibilities, executables & requirements for device validation to be successful

The verification that your suppliers are fully conversant and compliant with all the regulatory obligatory requirements has become a rather burdensome load for some companies and an unacceptable load for others. However: the growing expectation is that these subcontractors will; step by step,  increase their cGMP compliance level.

This continuing upsurge in subcontractor cGMP compliance must result in the industry becoming familiar with the authoring, reviewing and approval of the full suite of cGMP document.  Documents such as: IQ,OQ, DQ, PQ,VRA,VP, URS, were born.

Just completed a medical device validation template supplier assessment; how important was your documentation? How important was your justification for your decision? Have you been biased in your judgement? Were your priorities right? How did you get it so wrong? These are questions that are in the minds of all persons affected by an adverse audit outcome. To make certain that you are going to be ‘squeaky clean’, every question, and every answer and observation, needs to be clearly documented. The company priorities must be understood and integrated into the weighting of the 510k Pre-Audit documents. If you are auditing on behalf of a client, they have a right to review your assessment documents, and you are required to be impartial and accurate in your findings.

Assurance services involve the internal auditor's objective assessment of evidence to provide an independent opinion or conclusions regarding an entity, operation, function, process, system, or medical device validation template or other subject matter. The nature and scope of the assurance engagement are determined by the internal auditor. There are generally three parties involved in assurance services: (1) the person or group directly involved with the entity, operation, function, process, system, or other subject matter - the process owner, (2) the person or group making the assessment - the internal auditor, and (3) the person or group using the assessment - the user.


Medical Device Validation Template Te Scope.

A Medical Device Validation Template; pre-audit quality assessment questionnaire must cover the under listed topics but it must use a method of weighting the topics in order that the clients really critical topics have a more significant impact on the vendor’s assessment.

Medical Device Validation Template by Definition.

A medical device defined

An apparatus, instrument, implement, machine, contrivance, implant, in vitro reagent, or other similar or related article.

  • Listed in the official National Formulary, or the United States Pharmacopoeia.
  • Intended for use in the diagnosis of disease or other conditions, or in the cure, mitigation, treatment, or prevention of disease, in man or other animals.
  • Intended to affect the structure or any function of the body of man or other animals, and which does not achieve its primary intended purposes through chemical action within or on the body of man or other animals and which is not dependent upon being metabolized for the achievement of any of its primary intended purposes.”

Medical Devices Validation Templates & Other Regulated Products.

This definition provides a clear distinction between a medical device and other FDA regulated products such as drugs.

  1. If the primary intended use of the product is achieved through chemical action or by being metabolized by the body, the product is usually a drug.
  2. Human drugs are regulated by FDA’s Center for Drug Evaluation and Research (CDER).
  3. Biological products which include blood and blood products, and blood banking equipment are regulated by FDA’s Center for Biologics
  4. Evaluation and Research (CBER).FDA’s Center for Veterinary Medicine (CVM) regulates products used with animals.
  5. If your product is not a medical device but regulated by another Center in the FDA, each component of the FDA has an office to assist with questions about medical device validation template products they regulate.
