Medical Device classification in US
Instructor: Charles H Paul
Product ID: 505796
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has established classifications for approximately 1,700 different generic types of devices and grouped them into 16 medical specialties referred to as panels. Each of these generic types of devices is assigned to one of three regulatory classes based on the level of control necessary to assure the safety and effectiveness of the device.

The determination process, how you apply the classification process to your device, is complex and requires several levels of analysis to make the proper device classification. Proper medical device classification is the fundamental first step in submitting your device for approval anywhere in the world.

Objectives of the Presentation
At the completion of this training participants will be able to:
  • Explain the importance of properly classifying medical devices
  • Compare and contrast the similarities and differences globally in medical device classification processes
  • Explain how to determine if your product is a medical device
  • Explain the purpose and function of the medical device classification panels?
  • Identify and explain Medical Device exemptions and state when they apply
  • Explain the purpose of the product code classification database and explain how is it used?
  • Explain the process of classifying medical devices in the EU in terms of the new Medical Device Regulation
Why Should you Attend
When designing and developing medical devices it is essential to properly classify your device early on in the process to prevent costly and cumbersome regulatory issues and added or unnecessary work later in the design and development process.

What is the impact? What is the cost? Making the wrong decision - assigning your device a higher classification than necessary within any market, can cost you significant time and money in terms of your submittal process and how the design, development and the management of your device will be executed over its lifecycle.
