FDA’s Guidance: Medical Device Recalls 2019

Live Webinar

  • 180 minutes

Medical Device Recalls are an effective method of removing or correcting consumer devices that are in violation of laws administered by the Food and Drug Administration. Recall is a voluntary action that takes place because manufacturers and distributors carry out their responsibility to protect the public health and well-being from devices that present a risk of injury or gross deception or are otherwise defective.

Recall may be undertaken voluntarily and at any time by manufacturers and distributors, or at the request of the Food and Drug Administration. A request by the Food and Drug Administration 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.
