FDA 21 CFR 820 Compliance
All medical device companies in the U.S. are required to adhere to FDA standards. Specifically, FDA 21 CFR part 820 — also known as the Quality System Regulation — outlines current good manufacturing practice (cGMP). This regulation sets the standard for the methods and facilities you use to manufacture products and handle design, manufacturing, labeling, packaging, storage and other factors regarding your medical devices.
Because the Quality System Regulation outlines such a broad array of requirements, it can be challenging for medical device companies to maintain compliance assessment metrics. RCA takes the stress out of regulatory compliance with our range of assessment services. You can sit back and focus on your business operations while we identify any challenges your business faces in maintaining compliance. We’ll then work with you to thoroughly prepare your metrics and documentation for an FDA inspection.
Mergers and Acquisitions / Due Diligence
When a life science company considers a merger or acquisition, it is easy to think of the deal’s risk as a potential conflict with the FDA or its equivalent in other countries. The due diligence team looks for 483s, Warning Letters, notified bodies and findings, and product recalls. But more often, the real reasons a deal doesn’t deliver value are strategic, cultural, or technical. It’s these value-destroying areas that need to be explored during due diligence.
RCA leverages its global experience with acquisitions and divestitures to navigate the gray areas of due diligence and help eliminate uncertainties often inherent in a complex deal. These include:
- Regulatory Due Diligence
- Quality Due Diligence
- Facility / Equipment Assessment
- Personnel Assessment
- Risk Identification and Mitigation Planning
- Post-merger Integration
Additional services related to assessments include:
- 21 CFR Part 11 / Annex 11 Assessment
- 21 CFR Part 820 Assessment
- ISO 13485 Assessment
