This webinar will explain the regulatory requirements and a risk based procedure to qualify and manage suppliers that develop software for your company. The phases of the selection process, from compiling a list of candidate developers through the qualification audit and final decision, will be explained. This process is based on the regulations and the authors experience in qualifying contract software developers. Contracts and Quality Agreements will be described in detail.

Regulatory agencies require that companies carefully select suppliers and contract software developers (CSD). They must follow a carefully planned and documented procedure. The responsibility for product quality and safety remains with the company. It cannot be delegated to the software developer.
