FDA Medical Devices Registration

One of the most highly sought after goals of any medical device manufacturer is the American market. Both in terms of economical prospect and of obtaining the FDA certificate. Still, the FDA registration of medical devices is often considered an overwhelming obstacle and a corporate effort that risks not being sufficiently rewarding. 

This training provides a precise overview of:

  • how FDA reviewers face the dossiers received
  • what information or level of detail is expected
  • and how to deal with reviewers

to make the approval process much faster and more profitable for the whole company.

  • FDA Manufacturers registration (Establishment Registration): brief introduction
  • Classification of medical devices according to the FDA and related registration process (510K, PMA). Hands-on classification exercises
  • UDI: timelines and ways to implement it
  • The new FDA guideline: understand the FDA perspective and how to best use it; generate the documentation you need for registration
  • 510K: the importance of strategy. Practical examples
  • How and why to integrate the FDA strategy in the overall device development process: overlaps and differences as compared to the MDR
  • The structure of a 510K, when and how to submit
  • How to deal with FDA and how to reply to deficiency letters
  • Registering devices that do not require a 510K: PMA and Combination Devices (drug-device & device drug)
