U.S. FDA Medical Device Contract

Funding provided by FDA under this contract allows the Texas Department of State Health Services to enhance its inspection capabilities associated with licensed medical device manufacturers, resulting in an increased number of inspections of these facilities. Inspections of medical device manufacturers help to minimize the potential for adulterated and misbranded products to be introduced into commerce in Texas. Funding under the contract also provides for basic and advanced training of state inspectors to maintain adequate proficiency levels required to accomplish these complex inspections. Additionally, the medical device industry benefits from the regulatory guidance provided by state inspectors during these inspections, thereby helping to ensure that Texas manufacturers are operating in conformance with all applicable state and federal requirements.
