2day Inperson Seminar on How to Prepare and Submit a Bullet Proof 510k and Latest FDA Proposed

11/7/2013 9:00 AM - 11/8/2013

For more than 30 years, the 510(k) process has consistently done a good job of protecting patients against unsafe products. The process is well designed to assess the safety and effectiveness of low and moderate risk medical devices whose risks are well understood from experience with similar devices. Various industry trade groups and associations are now somewhat concerned that the number and scope of FDA's recently proposed 510(k) changes could negatively impact the agency's mission to ensure American patients have timely access to safe and effective medical technologies.

In comments submitted to FDA in response to the agency's release in August 2010 of more than 60 proposals to change the 510(k) process, industry has advocated that instead of implementing an extensive list of potentially disruptive proposals, FDA should focus on the proposals the agency has advanced that enjoy broad agreement and consensus, such as: increased reviewer training, development of specific and relevant guidance documents, and enhancements or improvements to the de novo review pathway, among other suggestions. This 1-day primer and course will provide an update to these proposals as appropriate and where we stand but more importantly, provide direction, guidance and clarity on preparing for, executing and submitting your 510(k) application.
