This in-house provides a unique opportunity to understand and discuss the regulatory and legal requirements with respect to Post Marketing Surveillanc including Vigilance
While the pre-market approval process has been delegated by most of the Competent Authorities to the private sector, Competent Authorities have kept the responsibility for the surveillance of their market. Because of this situation there is transfer of resource and energy to the monitoring of markets including the vigilance system within each Member State. The evaluation of incidents notified by manufacturers and users represents a key source of information for authorities, combined with sophisticated exchange of information between EU Member States, and with other countries like USA, Japan, Canada or Australia, provides a unique insight into the performance of devices in the post production phase.
Full compliance with the vigilance requirements laid down in Article 10 of Directive 93/42/EC is justified by the manufacturers’ legal obligations, risks associated to litigation and increasing scrutiny of Member States, but mainly by the ultimate objective of providing safe devices to patients. It is essential that manufacturers ensure compliance with these requirements.
This In-house course will provide practical advice on how to comply with these requirements including how to handle adverse event reporting during medical device clinical studies.
