How Manufacturing Onsite Audits Continue during COVID-19

Recording Date: May 2020

Lately, due to the pandemic, our safety engineers are continuously being asked, “Can I still get my product SIL certified?” 

During a device certification project, an onsite meeting is expected and normally takes place over a 1-2 day period. After all the process gap issues have been addressed, an on-site audit meeting is scheduled. During the visit, the exida engineer reviews the existing development procedures in detail and interviews the respective responsible parties to discover how their process has been applied to the Product. If there are any audit findings, an action item list is issued. So the question is “How are manufacturers completing their onsite audits during times when restrictions are in place during COVID-19?” exida has created a process for JUST this and has continued to orchestrate onsite assessments REMOTELY. This webinar will share with you the audit process and how exida is now helping manufacturers with these assessments without stepping foot on their manufacturing floor.
