Vincent van der Meer
I am a senior consultant in the medical device industry and have always had a high interest in biology, especially the medical biology, since I’ve studied Life Sciences. While I initially started my career as an IT consultant, I moved to the Medical Device industry over 7 years ago because I was intrigued by the challenges one of my clients, who was a Medical Device manufacturer, faced in their Quality Management System as well as regulatory challenges regarding their products.
Since then, I have been using and broadening my skills in several R&D- and QA/RA positions for Medical Device product development (DTM, DHF, Technical Dossiers), manufacturing & sterilization processes (DMR, infrastructure, validation) and numerous quality- and regulatory processes related to ISO 13485 (distribution, traceability, PMS, UDI’s, change control, etc), all related to the Medical Device Directive and (transition to) the EU Medical Device Regulation.
I have worked with a variety of products, from self-certified class I endoscopy disposables, class IIb advanced wound dressings up to high-risk (class III) soft-tissue implants in several positions, from QA/RA support to QA/RA specialist and more recently as Director QA/RA and R&D.
With a history in IT, I have an eye for using efficient and/or automated systems for QA/RA challenges in both small and large companies. I analyze and translate challenges in understandable and workable solutions.
I am a senior consultant in the medical device industry with experience in active medical devices and a fascination for new technologies.
I have a background in analytical chemistry (BSc) and information technology (MSc). During my previous career quality management and quality related processes played an important role. The first career steps were made as deputy quality manager (at a STERLAB accredited laboratory) where I was application owner of information system(s). The application of Information technology to support business processes has kept my interest and I switched to the information technology services industry. I worked on projects where quality management, design, verification and validation processes needed to be implemented and executed. This in different sectors, food, telecoms, banking and the medical device industry.
During my previous work in the medical device industry I had the opportunity to gain in depth experience in the (digitization of) manufacturing processes of implantable devices. I could add value in the quality assurance of software development processes as well as providing valuable support to capture and elicitate the requirements (URS). My formal responsibility was to assure the complete lifecycle of the project and its documentation deliverables (implantable medical devices company).
I have an eye for the broader picture of a problem and an eye for detail and find it rewarding to support organisations implementing QA systems within software development for medical devices (e.g. ISO 62304, ISO 13485) or to support with non-device software validation projects.
I am a senior consultant in the medical device industry, providing consulting services for QMS’s, product files and regulatory submissions.
I have over 25 years’ experience in the medical device industry and (bio) pharmaceutical companies. I have worked in Quality, Regulatory and project management roles for various companies. I have worked on all general QA-activities (like batch release, change control, validation, CAPA, doc-control and internal audits). More recently I have focused on supplier audits and risk-management. My experience is mainly related to non-active devices.
I have experience with the Quality aspects of outsourced operation-activities (manufacturing, warehousing and distribution). To improve my project management skills, I have become a lean six sigma green belt.
I can fulfill or support various functions like QA/RA manager, Project manager/Expert member in D&D, Production and Supply chain projects or Auditor.
