Did you know that according to FDANews, a GHTF (Global Harmonization Task Force) proposed guideline could suggest an increase of supplier audits for certain medical device manufacturers?

Supplier audits have long been of the utmost importance in the medical device environment and the inspection of products/services provided by suppliers is a practice well worth the time of conscientious manufacturers. However, for those manufacturers that disregard background checks on suppliers there may be a new "failure to comply" risk knocking at their door.

A recently proposed GHTF guideline states that those manufacturers who fail to inspect their suppliers’ services and products could be subject to more supplier audits which for some medical device manufacturers could be a significant quality action.
