Since September 2009, the Centre for Devices and Radiological Health has been reviewing the operation of the 510(k) program and the way CDRH uses science in the decision making process. In August 2010, the 510(k) Working Group and the Task Force on the Utilization of Science in Regulatory Decision Making each released a preliminary report with a series of recommendations. Overall, industry has provided mostly a positive response but with exceptions. The proposals are more benign than many had feared. No radical change to the current process appears likely. Bottom line, FDA issued two comprehensive evaluations containing recommendations that address three key objectives of the agency’s public health mission as it relates to medical devices – foster device innovation, create a more predictable regulatory environment, and enhance device safety.
WHY SHOULD YOU ATTEND
This webinar provides an overview of the premarket notification process and all of the critical and key steps required to ensure you prepare and submit a well-constructed 510(k). Provides an overview of the 510(k) Program including the basics of how to prepare and submit a 510(k) to the FDA and recent changes and trends. There is no 510(k) form; however, 21 CFR 807 Subpart E describes requirements for a 510(k) submission. Before marketing a device, each submitter (the applicant) must receive an order, in the form of a letter, from FDA which finds the device to be substantially equivalent (SE) and states that the device can be marketed in the U.S.
