Online Webinar 2019 - 3 hrs Virtual Seminar Latest FDA thinking on deciding when to Submit a 510(k) for a Change to an Existing Device - FDA's Final Guidance



VenueOnine, USA - United States USA - United States



Topics/Call fo Papers

Control of medical device changes and a current 510(k) are big issues in recent FDA studies. Companies are held fully responsible for deciding when a new 510(k) filing is warranted. Often this is a difficult decision process. Effective change control and the power of current risk management tools must be a major part of such an analysis. The U.S. FDA has published two New Guidance Documents in October 2017, "Deciding When to Submit a 510(k) for a Change to an Existing Device", 1) on the device itself, and 2) on device software. These documents provide companies tools to perform meaningful, results driven 510(k) / change analysis activities. They replace the FDA’s previous Memorandum K 97-1 on the same subject. This is part of a growing push by the Agency to strengthen the 510(k) process. The addition of simple tools will assist companies in implementing formal, documented, repeatable methods with defensible rationale for their decisions on when one or several changes may require a new 510(k) submission.

Learning Objectives
This webinar will provide valuable assistance to all regulated companies performing and documenting meaningful, results driven 510(k) / change analysis activities, based on the FDA's two new Guidance documents on 510(k) Device and Software changes. It will discuss how companies can best document their decisions -- whether or not a new 510(k) filing is warranted. It will assist in the implementation of formal methods with documented, and defensible rationale; which will also prepare industry for further 510(k) changes in the future. This applies to companies in the medical device and combination products fields.
