Validating Medical Packaging

According to the FDA Quality System Regulations, manufacturers must ensure that "device packaging and shipping containers are designed and constructed to protect the device from alteration or damage during the customary conditions of processing, storage, handling, and distribution." As specific as this statement is, the FDA does not provide instructions on how to achieve their standards. Validating Medical Packaging demystifies the validation procedure for medical device packaging by providing specific examples and templates for creating and maintaining a validation file.

Hi,

Packaging plays a vital role in assuring the sterility of medical devices and instruments from manufacture to point of use. These are constructed to protect the device from alteration or damage during the customary conditions of processing. Thanks a lot...
