The CDRH has released its 2010 Compliance Strategic Plan. As part of the plan, CDRH intends to implement six goals relating to risk-based strategic compliance planning. Among other things, CDRH will create a database to assist staff to identify “compliance targets” based on weighted factors. Also among the initiatives is a goal to streamline the Warning Letter clearance process.
