Medical Device Recalls are an effective method of remov­ing or correcting consumer devices that are in violation of laws administered by the FDA. Manufacturers and dis­tributors usually voluntarily recall devices to protect public health and well-being. A request by the FDA that a firm recall a device is reserved for urgent situa­tions and is to be directed to the firm that has primary responsibility for the manufacture and marketing of the device that is to be recalled.


This course will train you in every aspect of the device recall process. Failure to properly recall a product can lead to seizure or other court actions by the FDA. Training in effective recalls will minimize both financial and PR issues for your firm and will enable your firm to swiftly re-build after an issue.
