For a new or modified medical device, product approvals are required prior to distribution. This course is intended to provide participants with a detailed list of documents and testing required for a 510(k) Notification submission to the US FDA and a Technical File for submission to a Notified Body for the CE Mark.

The first day of this 2 day course will detail the requirements of a 510(k) submission. The course is interactive and each participant is encouraged to ask questions about specific products. The contents and rational for submitting a traditional, abbreviated and special 510(k) for a Class II Medical Device will be detailed. Labeling, Substantial Equivalence and Performance Testing for various medical devices will be detailed. In addition, the Refuse To Accept Checklist will be reviewed to help participants audit their 510(k) submissions for compliance to the checklist.

On day 2 of this course we switch gears to the EU and the requirements for the preparation of a Technical File. As an introduction, CE versus CE with a number, ISO 13485 or ISO 9001 Compliance versus Certification for a Class I device and what Annex to follow for the CE Mark will be explained. The contents of the Technical File will be detailed with examples of Essential Requirements Checklist, Clinical Evaluation Reports and Declaration s for Conformity will be presented. In addition, the key changes in the new Medical Device Directive will be reviewed.

Sea Creatures at Birch Aquarium

Sea Creatures at Birch Aquarium

Birch Aquarium is north of San Diego in La Jolla. It's not as big as some of the other aquariums in California or as flashy as the big sea-themed park down the road, but instead just right, filled with interesting exhibits and home to leafy sea dragons like the one above, creatures so improbably they look more like something from a children's book than from the ocean.



Legoland theme park takes its inspiration from Lego toys, those cute little bricks that snap together to build all kinds of fun things. It's one of several Legolands worldwide.

San Diego Zoo Safari Park

San Diego Zoo Safari Park

The San Diego Zoo's sister park offers a different kind of animal experience. Its name (Safari Park) is the clue and it indeed offers a more safari-like experience. Lots of large animals live in the same big, open areas here - predators kept away from prey, but otherwise much as they would in their natural habitat.

Coronado Island

Coronado Island

Coronado isn't really an island but a peninsula - a fact that doesn't get in the way of the name most people use for it. Whatever you call it, it's on a slender strip of land between the San Diego Bay and the Pacific Ocean, barely a few blocks wide. What it lacks in size it makes up for in fun, with a beach that's been named among the best in the country, a classic hotel and a compact, lively little downtown. Coronado's laid-back temperament makes a nice break from the busier parts of San Diego across the water.

Balboa Park

Balboa Park

Originally built for temporary use during the 1915-16 Panama-California Exposition in San Diego, Balboa Park boasts buildings beautiful enough to be considered attractions in themselves, especially if you're a photographer. They're surrounded by trees, lawns and fountains, but that's only the beginning.
