QSR to QMSR: The Rewrite of 21 CFR Part 820 & Key Considerations for FDA Compliance

FDA is replacing the existing Quality System Regulation (QSR) with a Quality Management System Regulation (QMSR) as a rewrite of 21 CFR Part 820 and a revision of relevant sections of 21 CFR Part 4 (Combination Products). 

The QMSR will align U.S. medical device regulations with ISO 13485:2016 and was submitted as a proposed rule on 24 May 2022.

Register for this informative and engaging webinar where FDA regulatory expert Eric Henry will provide an overview of the QMSR proposed rule, explain next steps in the rulemaking and implementation process, and discuss important considerations for medical device manufacturers. 

There will be time allotted for Q&A and to discuss impacts to both industry and the FDA, as a result of this significant regulatory change.
