Does More FDA Oversight Equal Better Compliance?
Since 2007, FDA has increased its annual number of medical device inspections by 46% and has increased annual inspections of foreign firms by 243%. In that timeframe, the agency also helped establish the Medical Device Single Audit Program, which has increased its oversight of foreign manufacturing facilities beyond the inspections the agency performs on its own. The question is, have these actions translated into improved quality compliance? The short answer, according to a new report issued by FDA's Center for Devices and Radiological Health (CDRH), is yes. According to the Medical Device Enforcement and Qual...
