Medical Device Design Verification SOP

 This Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) describes the procedures verifying a Product’s design through appropriate inspection, testing, analysis, and review. This Verification ensures the Product Requirements, which are defined during the Design Input phase of Design Control, have been met.



This SOP applies to all medical devices that are approved for Product Development as well as to the personnel who are responsible for implementing Design Controls for such medical devices. This Design Controls SOP does not apply to medical devices in very early stage of development such as early concept or feasibility stages. Design Controls begin after concept and feasibility studies are completed after the Company Management approves the initiation of a Product Development Project.

This SOP applies to the Product’s labeling including the User Manual. It does not describe the Verification process for Product software.
