The FDA’s Compliance Program Guidance Manual for the inspection of medical devices states that the FDA field inspectors conduct administrative and enforcement activities related to the Quality System (QS) Regulation (21 CFR 820), the Medical Device Reporting (MDR) Regulation (21 CFR 803), the Medical Device Tracking Regulation (21 CFR 821), the Corrections & Removals Regulation (21 CFR 806), and the Registration & Listing Regulation (21 CFR 807).
Under the QS regulation, manufacturers are expected to control their devices from the design stage through post market surveillance. Manufacturing processes, such as sterilization, are required to be implemented under appropriate controls. However, the MDR, Tracking, and Corrections and Removals regulations involve activities with which manufacturers and importers are required to comply after the devices are distributed.
Before inspectors can conduct the above inspections, they are trained by the FDA on how to conduct inspections. This training program encompasses the five regulations for inspecting medical device firms.
