Medical Device Documentation: but what (exactly) shall I write?
Documenting the design controls for a medical device is a mandatory exercise in our industry. Regulations descibe what the documentation must show. Standards describe harmonized ways in which regulations can be fullfilled. Your quality management system should, in best case, describe which process you need to follow in order to satisfy the standards and regulations and finally your company templates are what you use to finally pen it down.
However, regardless of the multitude of support systems, at the end of the day some of us given the task to provide a document, will sit down in front of the computer and think:
But what exactly should I write?
