A Journey Through Reportable Events

Deviations happen, but does FDA require each one to be reported? Join members of the EBAA QA Committee as they present various cases and discuss whether or not the described deviations from standard procedures are reportable to the FDA. From common to uncommon incidents, you’ll learn what constitutes a reportable deviation and hear examples of deviations throughout the eye banking community. 


For one fee of $50 (EBAA Member) or $150 (Non-Member), the entire organization may attend the webinar. After registration, a confirmation email will be sent with a discount code. The contact person who purchased the session should send the discount code to other staff members who may wish to attend the session. The discount code will allow staff to attend remotely for free. 

Note: if an organization has multiple locations, additional registrations must be purchased for each location.

CEU Information

A new CEU process has been implemented. If an individual views the session through their own eyeLEARN account, they simply need to complete the survey on their account to claim credit for the session. If a group of people view the session together in a conference room, then each person should complete the survey listed in the confirmation email to claim CEU credit. 

Important: Whether through eyeLEARN or the survey in the confirmation email, each attendee must complete their own survey to claim credit for the session.
