If your company is only interested in compliance with the US Market (i.e., 21 CFR 820, 21 CFR 803, 21 CFR 806, 21 CFR 830 for the FDA), we offer a turnkey quality system for the US-only market at a reduced price of $6,000. The US-only turnkey quality system does not include the seven procedures identified below as “Global”. There are additional pricing options and configurations of the turnkey quality system described at the end of the work instruction that you can view when you click on the button below. However, please remember that “turnkey” does not mean “work-free“. It takes approximately 100-120 hours to implement a medical device quality system and after you implement the quality system it will take at least 4-8 hours per week to maintain the quality system for even the smallest start-up with most processes outsourced.

If you are thinking about purchasing standard operating procedures (SOPs), instead of writing procedures yourself, it’s essential to understand the intent of the author that wrote the procedures. Many buyers expect to “pay by the pound.” After writing hundreds of procedures, I found that it requires more work to write a short and effective procedure than a 50-page dust collector.

If a company has a sophisticated quality management system, procedures tend to be lengthy, because each time an auditor finds a problem, another section is added to “clarify” the procedure. I try to write standard operating procedures that are concise and meet the requirements for an early-stage medical device company. Larger companies do not ask me to write many procedures. They ask me to audit procedures and to edit their procedures, but they seldom want me to start from scratch.

When Medical Device Academy writes standard operating procedures, we use a standard template for the sections. Almost everyone does this, but our template contains three unique elements:

  1. monitoring and measurement requirements for the process
  2. training and retraining requirements for personnel
  3. application of risk management

There is a section of the work instruction that is specific to creating a project in Asana. The above video shows you how to copy the 15 steps of the quality system implementation from the work instruction into a spreadsheet. Then this is saved as a .csv file (download link). Finally, the video shows you how to import the .csv file into Asana so that you can create a project in Asana for tracking and managing the implementation of Medical Device Academy’s turnkey quality system. The video was specifically designed for the free version of Asana if you need to share the project in Asana with people outside of your organization or you do not have the budget for Asana’s paid version.

    1. Thank you for the inquiry. We do create custom work instructions for some of our clients, but it would be for a manufacturing process that we understand like packaging, sterilization, molding, extrusion, etc. The type of SOP or clinical study you are talking about is outside of our expertise. Sorry we can be of more help.

  1. Your article on standard operating procedures (SOPs) is enlightening! SOPs are the backbone of quality in the medical device industry. Your emphasis on clarity, consistency, and compliance resonates well. Implementing robust SOPs ensures operational efficiency and regulatory adherence.

    1. The procedures certainly identify the quality system requirements for the device industry, but we still have too many people that rely on reading procedures as their only training. AAMI is working with the FDA to update the compendium that books that include best practices for each of the FDA’s quality system requirements. With the transition to ISO 13485 on the horizon, it will be fascinating to see what the FDA provides as guidance on procedures, quality plans, and training requirements.
