Why Should You Attend:

The majority of medical devices are cleared for marketing in the U.S. by the FDA under the 510(k) process – for Class 2 devices. The U.S. FDA mandates that the traditional 510(k) submission address 21 basic requirements. The "Special" and "Abbreviated" 510(k)s must also address them, but in different ways.

The FDA holds companies responsible for filing new 510(k)s when new products are to be marketed in the U.S., or when existing products and/or their Indications for Use are changed.

Topic Background:

A US FDA Task Force identified several problem areas with the existing medical device 510(k) process, leading to the growing push by the Agency to strengthen the 510(k) process. Current methods are claimed to not be providing the product safety or efficacy seemingly promised. What can companies do proactively to address these concerns and better ensure a smoother review process. Growing high-profile field problems indicate that change control and it’s effect on regulatory review activities are not yet fully utilizing the power of current risk management tools, which must be a part of s 510(k) submission. What can companies do in proactively addressing these issues, to "put the reviewer's mind at ease" when reviewing a 510(k)? Fully complying with the 21 key requirements can be met by implementation of formal methods with documented, and defensible rationale.
