DHF/Technical File Remediation

Ensure your DHF/Technical Documentation stays current and compliant

DHF/Technical File Remediation FAQ's

This is a constant concern for companies, as regulatory requirements can be vague and vary depending on device classification and intended use. Companies often seek guidance on how much information is enough to demonstrate compliance without creating an unnecessarily cumbersome file.

Maintaining design documentation is an ongoing process, not a one-time effort. Companies need effective systems and procedures to manage document versions, incorporate new data, and ensure updated files are readily available for regulatory audits or market surveillance requests.

Companies often underestimate the risks of inaccurate or incomplete design documentation. Potential consequences include delays in market approval, product recalls, fines, and damage to brand reputation. Understanding these risks can incentivize companies to invest in proper design documentation maintenance.
