US FDA 21 CFR Part 820 (QSR)

Labquality has great expertise with quality systems, including the USA Food and Drug Administration Quality System Regulation, QSR, 21 CFR Title 820.

What are the QSR requirements?

Any company that want to sell their medical devices in the United States has to be compliant to FDA quality system regulation 21 CFR Part 820 (QSR). The QSR set the requirements for quality management system and are similar to ISO 13485 requirements. However, there are certain differences. The FDA QSR is a US law that needs to be followed, whereas ISO 13485 status is not similar in the EU.

  • Establish that the quality system is consistent with the complexity of the device, manufacturing processes and size, and the complexity of the manufacturing facility
  • Plan to define and implement effective procedures
  • Implement what has been documented and is going to be done
  • Check the system and make necessary changes (CAPA)
  • Act upon changes and ensure they are implemented
