  2. Warning Letter: Failure to establish procedures (s6788c)

    Tags: | |

    Failure to establish design change control procedures for the identification, documentation, validation and/or verification, review, and approval of design changes before implementation. [21 CFR § 820.30(i)] Specifically, between 2003 and 2006, design changes were made to the Secure Safety Insert System. The molding operation was changed to improve the visibility of the biohazard symbol on the cap; the interlock of the cap into the tube was changed to improve the pull strength testing; and short caps were added to accommodate different size syringes.  Verifications and/or validations, design reviews, design releases, and design approvals were not performed for any of these changes.

  4. Warning Letter: Failure to establish and maintain adequate procedures (s6752c)

    Tags: | |

    Failure to establish and maintain adequate procedures for validating the device design to include software validation and risk analysis, as required by 21 CFR 820.30(g). For example, [redacted] Software Development Manager, indicated the diagnostic algorithm system for the PAD software was enhanced to version [redacted] from [redacted] in September 2007, to include the Arabic and Persian languages. The pediatric capability transfer for the PAD device was conducted on 1/18/07, and 2/19/07. Your validation protocol ( [redacted]) failed to document how you validated the software upgrade or how you validated the pediatric capability transfer. 2. Failure to establish and maintain adequate procedures for acceptance of incoming product to include inspection, testing, or other verification as conforming to specified requirements, as required by 21 CFR 820.80(b). For example: a) The Heartsine Samaritan AED System Traveler form ( [redacted]) indicates that Internal Inspection and In QAT testing was not performed for serial numbers [redacted] and [redacted]. Additionally, the required Monitoring Mode for steps [redacted] through [redacted] was not performed for serial number [redacted] b) The Heartsine Samaritan PAD Unit [redacted] form ( [redacted]) indicates that Internal Inspection and In QAT testing was not performed for serial number [redacted] c) The Heartsine Samaritan PAD [redacted] Page ( [redacted]) indicates that [redacted] Inspection and Inspection of [redacted] were not performed for serial numbers [redacted] and [redacted]”

  6. Warning Letter: Incomplete documentation of validation (s6741c)

    Tags: | |

    Failure to adequately establish and maintain procedures for validating the device design, as required by 21 CFR820.30(g). For example:

    a. Device software validation is incomplete. For example, the documentation of the external validation testing for the [redacted] Scanner conducted by a Canadian site in 2005 reveals incomplete sections rating the effectiveness of the scanner.

    b. Discrepancies that were noted at the completion of design validation are not addressed. For example, the final validation report for the [redacted] noted an issue regarding “streak” artifacts at one of the clinical sites; however, there was no further documented evaluation of this artifact to include significance and potential risk prior to the finalization of the design validation and commercial distribution.

  8. Warning Letter: Failure to adequately establish and maintain procedures for software validation (s6730c)

    Tags: | |

    Failure to adequately establish and maintain procedures for software validation and to perform risk analysis, where appropriate, as required by 21 CFR 820.30(g). For example: a. Design validation of device software was not performed for some versions of the software and is inadequate for other versions. Specifically, your firm has not conducted validation of your [redacted] Software after changes to the software’s functionality have been made from your first distribution of Version [redacted] through your current Version [redacted]. Also your firm’s most current software validation of the [redacted] Software [redacted] Platform is inadequate in that the validation that was conducted for Version [redacted] consisted primarily of functional testing (black-box testing) and lacks other elements of software validation including structural testing (white-box testing).

    Tags: | |

    Your firm failed to establish and maintain adequate procedures to control design validation , including software validation and risk analysis, where appropriate, as required by 21 CFR 820.30(g). For example: a. Because you failed to follow your procedure, the acceptance criteria were not complete prior to the performance of validation activities.

  10. Warning Letter: Inadequate employee training (s6660c)

    Tags: | |

    Failure to ensure that all employees have the necessary training and experience to perform their jobs, as required by 21 CFR 820.25 (b). Specifically employees who manage, perform, and assess work affecting quality have not been adequately trained as members of your firm’s quality unit. Quality Assurance employees have not performed effectively in conducting complaint investigations, corrective/preventive action activities, design activities, internal audits, risk analysis and/or document reviews. You ran out of existing safety pins for the circumcision tray and a larger safety pin was substituted. You received at least two customer reports of excessive bleeding. The change to the larger safety pin was made by the Product Family Coordinator (PFC). The product authorization form was not signed and did not proceed through the change process. Other examples of inadequate employee training are the failure to implement adequate corrective and preventive actions to complaints of crystallizing alcohol in kits and a complaint of weak seals.
