What You Need to Know About Design Validation

Design validation ensures that devices conform to defined user needs and intended uses under actual or simulated use conditions. When you truly understand the root of design validation—namely, your users—you are better equipped to define user needs and test them to meet the spirit of design validation as required by 21 CFR 820.

In this webinar, Jessica Lee, director of quality at Boston Scientific, will walk through the five W’s (Who? What? Where? When? Why?) to help you understand your users, using specific examples from Boston Scientific. She will also address frequently asked questions on topics such as leveraging, sample size, dry runs, and failures.
