Recall compliance is critical to the continued survival of all device manufacturers. FDA  is continuing its efforts to issue numerous Warning Letters and serious enforcement actions, including criminal and civil penalties levied on companies that fail to properly report events and take proper corrective and removal action.

The number of device companies having their recalls classified as Class 1 (most severe) has surged in the past three years. Additionally, product liability and financial risks are staggering when companies fail to properly report and take action when required.

Rita Hoffman, recently retired FDA Center for Devices and Radiological Health recall branch chief, has more than 36 years’ experience in compliance issues and will provide you the tools to minimize the risk of regulatory enforcement actions.

She will address effective communication with regulatory agencies in the event of a recall, the appropriate conduct of a correction and removal to avoid a recall crisis (including required recordkeeping and expectations of FDA and other regulatory agencies in the event of recall) and key factors in implementing and maintaining compliance with the regulations and real life experiences.

This presentation will benefit all device manufacturers and is recommended for any individuals who are involved in correction and removal processes, including recalls.
