Medical Device Consulting

Regardless of where you are in your medical device’s lifecycle, even one compliance issue can be a major setback. When remediation is required, it can pose distinct challenges that your company and team may not be fully prepared to successfully navigate. For this reason, it’s important to get the targeted help you need to keep your medical device’s development on track.


FDA Regulation

FDA regulations are constantly changing and developing, and the medical device industry is developing products faster than ever before. So it’s understandable that the path to market for your product can seem more like a moving target than a clear and set route. In addition, depending on where you intend to market your product, international regulatory changes — like the new EU Medical Device Regulation (MDR) that went into force in May 2017 — can cause previously unforeseen compliance issues.


Corrective and Preventative Action (CAPA)

When you need remedial support, especially when a Corrective and Preventive Action (CAPA) plan is required, it’s essential to achieve continuous and positive progress in your medical device’s development. Otherwise, you could wind up back at the starting blocks instead of drawing closer to the finish line.


Fortunately, even if you and your team are in uncharted territory, forming a strategy to bring your company and product back into compliance is exactly what we’re all about. Our more than 500 associates are all seasoned professionals. The experts we assign to remediation projects have the know-how and insights to help you form, execute, and adhere to a strategy that brings you back into compliance in the most efficient manner possible.



Whether you’re looking to market a new implantable device to the European Union or looking for FDA clearance on a new infusion pump, we’re known for our ability to help medical device manufacturers through the most complex and challenging remediation issues. By forming an action plan with our knowledge of the regulatory landscape, you can take advantage of our collective experience in order to apply it proactively to your remediation requirements at a time when solutions matter the most.
