Preparing a US FDA Medical Device 510(k) Submission and Deciding When to Submit a 510(k) for a Change to an Existing Device
Duration: 75 Minutes
This webinar ensures your company gets a broader perspective of how and what to do to get a quick and non-debatable or questionable approval for your 510K product. All are different so this presentation will not just be specific for a specified Medical Device that is currently being marketed and your company wants the same opportunity to produce and sell that product.
Objectives of the Presentation
Medical device technology is constantly evolving, and the approval for another company to produce the same approved Medical Device product requires FDA's review and consent. The new FDA 510K recommendations are intended to provide guiding principles to help manufacturers determine when an intended product or minor change to a legally marketed medical device subject to premarket notification in compliance with the 510K requirements is significant enough to warrant FDA review and approval, including major changes or modifications to the intended use that could significantly impact safety and effectiveness (patient risk).
Why Should you Attend
- Whenever a manufacturer changes its device, it must take certain actions to comply with the QS regulation, 21 CFR Part 820, unless a regulatory exemption exists. The QS regulation which includes your CAPA procedure requires that design changes and production and process changes be documented and proven to be just as good and not generating any patient risk and notifying the FDA for this change from the original approval prior to implementation.
- In evaluating whether a change requires a new 510(k), manufacturers have to consider whether there are any unintended consequences, needed clinical trials or effects of the device change. For example, changes in sterilization may unintentionally affect device materials, or changes to materials may unintentionally affect the performance of the device.
- FDA Briefing Documents - The purpose of the pre-facility meeting is to provide detail and seek FDA's input regarding your company’s proposed new manufacturing facility or the new manufacturing process, single use disposable manufacturing technology and to confirm that the proposed approach will provide adequate comparability data between the product that was proven to be functional based on the clinical results and now as is going to be used for commercial manufacturing in the new facility since the product produced in the pilot facility and used for the initial Phase II/III clinical trials.
Generate the technical comprehension and technical writing capabilities to eliminate corporate interpretations and translations of technical terms relative to the specifics of your specific process needed for a 510K submission. We always want to make the submission in a way that does not require any interpretation and delay. In order to get a quick approval the FDA should read the documents & come to the same conclusion that we did to generate the production process for this product ensuring we are not generating any patient risk.

Medical Devices keep changing a lot due to technology, but other companies want to produce and market the same Medical Device as has already been approved by the FDA and having been marketed which requires all the requirements and the submission of the 510K for this company wanting to get approval and be able to market this basically same product proven as a Medical Device. Knowing a much more effective approach using what will be shown in the webinar will make your company become successful as quickly as possible so the FDA has confidence in knowing this is truly a 510K submission with all the support needed to make sure there is no confusion about this product meeting the requirements for approval. The submission will not be processed unless all your involvement with the FDA and the supporting documentation to generate proof that this is in compliance with the 510K expectations.
Awareness of the FDA involvement and your generation of documents and objective evidence have to provide needed detail to gain easy and quick approval of a product. This discussion is intended to describe how to organize better than just getting your interpretation from the FDA 510K document.
