2019 Quality System Regulation Course

Friday, June 21, 2019

8:00 am – 5:00 pm


First created by RMRAS in 1997, this is the must-attend course for all personnel working in quality systems or regulatory affairs in the medical device industry.


The Quality System Regulation Course is designed to provide students with a clear understanding of the requirements of this regulation as well as the deliverables that the FDA expects to find during their inspections.


This year we are streamlining the program to focus on the following aspects of the regulation – Corrective and Preventive Actions, Design Controls, Production and Process Controls, and Records and Document Control.


Who should attend?

This course is directed towards those who are responsible for the design, implementation and maintenance of the quality system; QA, R&D, manufacturing, and regulatory affairs.   Management at all levels of the organization, especially those with executive responsibility, will find the legal and regulatory requirements and consequences covered in this course, enlightening.



Cost for the course is $395.00 including all course materials, QSR booklet, continental breakfast and lunch.
