MDSAP, or the Medical Device Single Audit Program, was developed by the International Medical Device Regulators Forum to assess an entire quality system and country-specific requirements in a single audit. Participation has steadily increased since the pilot phase closed in 2016: 417 manufacturer sites were enrolled as of August 2017, and 5 auditing organizations have been recognized as of December 2017 (with another 9 auditing organizations pending recognition). In this presentation, you’ll learn what MDSAP is, how these audits are conducted, and why your organization should participate in this program. (HINT: Planning to distribute medical devices in Canada in 2019?).
