Since the start of this year, Notified Bodies have been implementing the new requirements of the European legislation for Medical Devices and conducted the first unannounced audits. These first experiences show that in practice the issue is not as bad as it looked. Professionally managed companies that prepare well for unannounced audits generally master these audits quickly and without major interruptions.
To help you and your company to draw up an action plan for unannounced audits, we have prepared a brochure with the answers to 54 frequently asked questions. In this newsletter, we have summarized this brochure and other sources of information on unannounced audits.
I hope you find this and all other subjects in our newsletter an interesting and informative read.
