Write it Right – How to Write SOPs that Employees Can Understand and Follow
Almost every paragraph of the Quality System Regulation for medical devices says that manufacturers shall “establish” procedures. This webinar will help you to write complete, clear, unambiguous, and flexible SOPs (standard operating procedures) that accomplish that objective. You will learn techniques for creating concise and easy to read SOPs that your employees can understand and will follow. Well-written SOPs ensure consistent process output and quality results.
Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) are a critical ingredient in an effective and efficient Quality Management System. SOPs are typically one of the first things an investigator asks for in an inspection. Well-written SOPs send a message to the FDA and Notified Bodies that your QMS is complete, accurate, and followed. More importantly, well written SOPs ensure that your personnel can consistently and accurately follow your processes resulting in correct outcomes and quality work.
WHY SHOULD YOU ATTEND
“Inadequate SOP” observations still rank among the most frequently cited 483 and Warning Letter observations. SOPs are one of the first things an auditor/ investigator will review during an FDA audit. Most importantly, poorly written procedures make it difficult for your employees to understand and consistently follow procedures. This can lead to disastrous consequences including quality problems and even recalls. Poorly written SOPs can and do impact your business.
