2 Day in-person Seminar by former FDA Director, Casper Uldriks: Critical issues facing Medical Device in 2020: Pre-market pathways; MDR & MDSAP Implementation; Marketing Off Label Use

Seminar Overview:

The FDA’s device regulation has begun to make your regulatory life easier. Can you qualify for an easier way of life under FDA regulation? Getting to market with a new device could be totally under your control and keep FDA out of the premarket hurdle. On the other hand, the EU’s new regulation will make it more difficult. How can you prepare for that? What does it mean for FDA’s regulatory plans and your marketing roll out for new products? One disaster remains hidden and will be costly if you do not plan for it. The new EU Medical Device Regulation (MDR) affects U.S. firms that export devices to the EU. The MDR imposes many new requirements, one of which is the mandatory renewal of your exported device’s CE mark every ten years. This means that life cycle programs for devices will change. How will this impact your regulatory compliance? 

These are questions you should be able to answer to adequately your firm for 2020, not just in the U.S. but in the EU as well. 

Learning objectives:

  • Identify applied qualifications for 510(k) self-certifications
  • Explain global inspections per FDA 13485
