In February 2026, the FDA new Quality Management System Regulation (QMSR) will become effective. This represents the most significant change since the implementation of design controls in 1996 and is aimed at aligning the U.S. regulations more closely with global standards, particularly ISO 13485.

What does this mean for manufacturers and why is it vital to get ahead of it?

Join us for an insightful 45-minute webinar (including Q&A) where RQM+ Vice President of Intelligence & Innovation, Nancy Morrison, RAC will dive into the upcoming changes. Understand the critical updates, from design controls and risk management to traceability and record-keeping requirements. Discover how these changes aim to streamline processes, enhance device safety and performance, and foster a more global alignment in quality management practices.

Whether your organization is currently ISO 13485 compliant or facing a significant overhaul of your quality management system (QMS), our session is designed to provide you with the knowledge and strategies to assess the impact, plan effectively, and implement the necessary changes efficiently. We'll also explore the unchanged elements of the regulations to give you a comprehensive understanding of the landscape post-2026.

By attending, you'll gain:

  • A clear understanding of the new QMSR requirements and their implications for your business.
