Cary, North Carolina - A new resource is now available for small enterprises that manufacture medical devices to help them understand software validation requirements that come from the FDA's General Principles of Software Validation; Final Guidance for Industry and FDA Staff. A stepwise description of software validation practices for products that must comply with Quality System Requirement (QSR) standards is now on-line at

The FDA's validation requirements apply to software used as components in medical devices as well as to software that is itself a medical device. It also applies to software used in production of the device or in implementation of the device manufacturer's quality system. InstantGMP understands these standards and applies them to their software systems such as InstantGMP QSR, a medical device manufacturing software system.

InstantGMP QSR is a new medical device manufacturing software designed especially for small enterprises. While there are many good Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) software systems available, only InstantGMP QSR has the workflows and processes required by the FDA’s Quality System Regulation (QSR) built into the software. This makes the software easy to use, makes it easy to stay in compliance and makes this an affordable alternative to larger, more expensive ERP systems.
