MDSAP to demonstrate regulatory compliance and international market entry
Our comprehensive MDSAP auditing and certification services can give you a significant reduction in overall audit time needed to demonstrate compliance with multiple regulatory requirements through a single audit program. Many regulatory authorities may accept MDSAP results as an alternative to their own inspections when processing applications for medical device marketing authorization. Our program also combines the requirements of CE approvals with MDSAP thus further making compliance auditing as efficient as possible Reduce your corporate risk and protect your business with our recognized MDSAP audit and certification.
Our approach to MDSAP
MDSAP has been put into place to develop, manage and oversee an independent audit program in which manufacturers of medical devices can present the results of a single regulatory audit to prove compliance and qualify for market entry in multiple countries and jurisdictions. MDSAP inspection of a manufacturer quality management system (QMS) must be conducted by an authorized auditing organization (AO). Our worldwide auditing resource is qualified under the MDSAP program
Our comprehensive MDSAP auditing services for medical device quality management systems follow a three-step audit cycle:
Initial certification audit - Stage 1
Review of key documentation, readiness and planning
Initial certification audit - Stage 2
Evaluate QMS compliance to ISO 13485 and all MDSAP regulation. Once the initial certification audit has been successfully completed, the MDSAP certificate will be issued, which will be valid for three years.
Annual audit to assess ongoing compliance, effectiveness of changes in products or QMS processes
Every three years to determine manufacturer QMS suitability, effectiveness and compliance to MDSAP requirements
Manufacturers must be audited according to the scope declared in their applications for certification. Our experts determine which regulatory requirements apply to each manufacturer based on the countries in which medical device products are registered, sold or planned to be sold.
