This 510(K) training will help you understand and be prepared for substantial changes to the Premarket Notification 510(k) process for Class II medical devices.
Why Should You Attend:
FDA is poised to initiate substantial changes to the Premarket Notification “510(k)” process that will significantly increase the data and documentation requirements for Class II medical devices. Very few manufacturers are aware of the practical changes that will be needed during design control and 510(k) submission process to ensure lengthy and expensive delays do not occur for their new products.
As a Project’s Regulatory Leader, Quality Assurance Manager or Principal Design Engineer, what you do to craft a strategy will have profound ramifications for the company in terms of profitability, not to mention the product’s likelihood of clearing the evolving regulatory hurdles.
Do you have the knowledge, skills and tools necessary to lead your team to marketing clearance or approval? Do your current strategies address national (U.S. FDA) and international regulatory requirements (EU, Canada, etc) ensure a lean and FDA-compliant engineering, quality, clinical and regulatory practices are employed?
In this webinar, essential pragmatic methods and practical tools will be discussed in detail - techniques and procedures that you will be able to implement immediately to guide your teams and ensure compliance with the upcoming changes related to Class II and Class III product registration requirements. The focus of this webinar is NOT on general theory of legal and regulatory compliance, but rather a practical ‘roll up your sleeves’ approach toward planning and implementing changes in your own company that will meet the upcoming FDA requirements for 510(k) cleared products.
The tactical tools will be presented in the framework of an overall regulatory strategy so you can see the “forest for the trees” and effectively communicate your plan to senior management, the development team, and most importantly, to government regulators.
Ample examples, sources for additional reference reading, and model company policies and SOP templates will be provided so that you can immediately initiate plans and actions to adjust your internal practices.
Areas Covered in the Seminar:
- An intensive, brief but in-depth review of FDA’s current policy relating to the 25 recommendations the Agency has states it intends to implement in 2011;

- when to periodically report post-marketing information to FDA in lieu of submitting another 510(k)
- Practical and immediate steps to take to dramatically reduce the cost of regulatory compliance for Class II/III devices.
- Long-term strategies to ensure an efficient product development program.
