16-17 Sep 2019
This seminar will provide a solid foundation in the approval and clearance processes for medical devices in the United States. Participants will gain an understanding of the underlying legal and regulatory requirements and the “general controls” applicable to all devices, including device classification, establishment registration and device listing. With the underlying framework in mind, the approval and clearance processes for new and modified devices will be presented, including 510(k), IDE, PMA, HDE and De Novo applications.
Application contents, review processes, timelines, and key guidance documents will be discussed for each major type of submission. Participants will also learn about the “pre-submission” process, which FDA strongly recommends prior to the initial submission of novel devices to help ensure a successful submission process.

Upon completion of this seminar, participants will:
This seminar is intended for regulatory, technical, clinical and quality professionals who require an understanding of the FDA medical device approval process.
