The Association for the Advancement of Medical Instrumentation (AAMI) will offer a two-part webinar to explain the process for introducing a novel sterilization process to a healthcare product and identify the regulatory hurdles that must be met. The event will be held July 26-27, 2016, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. EDT.
Turned into a two-part webinar (two hours on two consecutive days), this four-hour workshop will explain the process for introducing a novel sterilization process to a healthcare product and identify the regulatory hurdles that must be met. Attendees will learn how to define, validate and ultimately routinely control a novel sterilization process.
Upon conclusion of this program, attendees will finish with an outline of the regulatory requirements of ISO 14937 and other applicable regulations and have a clear understanding of the considerations and implementation strategies for new sterilization processes.
This program is designed for sterilization subject matter experts, R&D, and regulatory and manufacturing personnel of healthcare product manufacturers.
