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 had published two New Guidance Documents, “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 attempt to provide companies tools to perform meaningful, results driven 510(k) / change analysis activities. 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.

Why You Should Attend:
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. The new guidance will provide manufacturers with a greater understanding of the FDA’s expectations in the current regulatory environment.
