2018 Product Recalls Forum

Each year, the number of drug and medical device increase on the market and so does the number of recalls. Product recalls in the pharmaceutical industry are not rare. In 2016 alone, manufacturers recalled 4,448 drug and device products, according to the Center for Devices and Radiological Health and the Center for Drug Evaluation and Research. Life science organizations need to understand how to manage recalls and learn how to prevent recalls from occurring. By effectively implementing a recall notification in your organization, you have a better chance warding off product recalls.

Over the course of two days, this forum will not only go in depth with how to understand, anticipate, and prevent recalls, but also explore recent findings and the most common causes of recalls. Attendees will hear case studies, review FDA requirements and expectations, and leave the forum knowing how to tackle product recalls for both drugs and devices.

  1. Strategize how to reduce recalls in your organization
  2. Review adapting to the new medical device regulations
  3. Explore recent findings and the most common causes of recalls
