In this webinar, essential tactical tools will be discussed in detail with examples of when to apply one and not another

Description

The tactical tools will be presented in the framework of an overall regulatory strategy so you can see the “forest for the trees” and effectively communicate your plan to senior management, the development team, and most importantly, to government regulators

Over the course of a medical device Regulatory Professional’s career, it is inevitable that you will face with dillemas regarding how to guide the development of a novel medical device for which no clear predicate device exists. By statute and regulation, unless one can demonstrate “substantial equivalence” with a marketed device, then, by default, the proposed device will be relegated to a significant risk, Class III category. With this designation come higher development costs, a longer development cycle, and enhanced risks that the proposed device will not meet regulatory prerequisites for market authorization.

In this webinar, essential tactical tools will be discussed in detail with examples of when to apply one and not another. The tactical tools will be presented in the framework of an overall regulatory strategy so you can see the “forest for the trees” and effectively communicate your plan to senior management, the development team, and most importantly, to government regulators. As important as what you propose are your rebuttals to Regulator arguments for mandating compliance with higher classification requirements, including Investigational Device Exemption sanctioned clinical studies, statistically significant clinical data, and full GCP compliance.

Ample examples and sources for outside reading will be provided so that you can continue to learn more about these strategic steps long after the webinar has ended. Regulated products are becoming more complex – are your regulatory strategies evolving as well? Participate, learn more and be prepared for the future.

From a regulatory perspective, these types of medical devices reside on the cusp of Class II and Class III status. What you, as the Development Project’s Regulatory Leader, do to craft a strategy will have profound ramifications for the company in terms of profitability, not to mention the product’s likelihood of clearing regulatory hurdles. Do you have the skills and experience to navigate the rocky shoals of regulatory compliance and lead your team to marketing clearance or approval? Do your current strategies address national (U.S. FDA) and international regulatory requirements (EU, Canada, etc)?

An array of proven techniques and strategies exist to help guide you and the team to success.These strategies will be more valuable than ever as the lines blur between medical devices and drugs and other combinations of regulated products
