Read Frequently Asked Questions

Why Should You Attend:

In the development of medical device, incomplete understanding and implementation of design controls will lead to rejection of an application for approval by the FDA or rejection of a CE mark application. Incomplete, vague or conflicting inputs will lead to a product being developed with is not suitable for use and will make it almost impossible to complete appropriate verification and validation of the medical device.

Design Control is fundamental in design and development of medical devices. It is required by the FDA and most regulatory bodies for approval of new medical devices. One of the most fundamental concepts in design control is design inputs, which are the basis of product design and are used to base verification and validation of the device. A good understanding of design control and the basis of initial design inputs is crucial to development of medical devices.
