FDA 510(k) 2015 - Device Changes, FDA Changes, and the 510(k)



VenueOnline event, USA - United States USA - United States

KeywordsFDA under the 510(k); FDA Changes; Medical devices


Topics/Call fo Papers

The majority of medical devices are cleared for marketing in the U.S. by the FDA under the 510(k) process. The FDA holds companies responsible for filing new 510(k)s when one change is major enough to impact safety / effectiveness, or when a series of lesser changes finally reach the "tipping point".
This is a major headache. How can companies make that determination? How can they trigger such an analysis over the major change or the series of smaller changes. What approaches are required for product changes; for process changes. How is the process risk-based? How to maximize the process against scarce resources. What are the different considerations for CE-marked product?

U.S. FDA device clearance / approval
FDA's and EU's emphasis
Product changes and filing a new 510(k) - who's responsible
