Understanding and Navigating the Evolving FDA Regulatory Process in order to Achieve Optimal Market Launch and Avoid Compliance Pitfalls
Wednesday, August 1, 2012 from 7:30 AM to 9:30 AM (PDT)
The FDA regulations for medical devices have been in place for over 35 years, but are changing more rapidly now than ever before. These days FDA expects quality to be pervasive throughout an organization and not relegated to simple manufacturing process controls. The Agency is also revising the 510(k) regulatory submission process, a fundamental pathway for new product clearances. It is imperative that device developers, manufacturers and distributors understand these changing regulations and implement the necessary controls and processes. This presentation will provide a high level overview of the FDA regulatory process, from testing through submission and clearance/approval, as well as the quality system requirements, both under the regulations and from a best business practices perspective.
