Current and past projects
Since January 2014, I am freelancing and consulting as expert for Quality Management Systems and Regulatory Affairs for Medical Devices. Current and past projects in several international companies include Notified Body Audit & FDA Inspection Readiness, Interim Quality Management (MDD Class I-III), Design Control for drug device combination products, Internal and Supplier Auditing, and Production Transfers, Process and Cleanroom Validations.
Expert for Quality Management Systems and Regulatory Affairs
As mechanical engineer by training I am working in medical devices for more than 15 years. After starting-up with the basics in manufacturing for balloon catheters and cardiac stents, I got responsible for quality engineering, process validation and deployment of six-sigma tools within development and manufacturing of drug eluting stents both in Germany and Ireland. Global Management of Pre-Production Quality and Regulatory Affairs for dialysis disposables added extensive knowledge about communication and interaction with authorities and notified bodies to my portfolio. By combining the requirements for worldwide submissions with the toolbox of Quality Management systems, I was able to shorten timelines for registration significantly and increase compliance to international standards and regulations. Having been a Quality Director in a high volume manufacturing environment for urology catheters and airway management products, I enjoyed finally three years of decision making, problem solving and simplifying quality work flows. Making quality operations management both a compliant and value adding activity was probably one of the things I am most proud of having accomplished.
