FDA Approval Process for Medical Devices 20 (London, United Kingdom - September 16-17, 2020) - ResearchAndMarkets.com

DUBLIN--()--The "FDA Approval Process for Medical Devices 20" conference has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.

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 to help ensure the successful submission of novel devices.

Demonstrations of how to find key information in FDA databases will be presented using participants' products and interests as examples. There will also be updates on recent legislation changes, new regulations and guidance documents.

Please note that while the law, regulations, principles and processes covered in the course apply to both medical devices and in-vitro-diagnostics (IVDs), the trainer's primary experience is with medical devices.
