Managing & Maintaining Medical Device Design History Files (DHFs) and Design Controls


Many medical device companies find themselves uncertain of how to meet FDA design control regulations, and overwhelmed with the associated DHF workload. Lean start-ups are focused on product innovation and launch, and therefore have few resources to dedicate to DHF documentation. Established companies have legacy product DHFs that were created years ago and are in need of an update. Many companies are faced with audit findings and corrective actions related to insufficient DHF procedures and files, and they don’t know where to begin the improvement process. No matter what the scenario is, EQS can help get your DHFs and procedures in order.

EQS can ease your DHF burden by:

  • Creating DHFs for new products
  • Reviewing & updating existing DHF documents to meet current regulations
  • Updating & expanding DHF documents for line extensions
  • Updating QMS procedures to streamline DHF processes and meet regulations
  • Training employees on understanding DHF documentation and regulations FDA 21 CFR 820.30
