Successful 510(k) Submissions (Description The 510()
|Event Date/Time: Aug 11, 2008|
The 510(k) submission process is the preferred method for obtaining marketing clearance for medical devices in the U.S.
In order to market a medical device in the U.S., manufacturers (foreign or domestic) must go through one of two evaluation processes stipulated by the U. S. FDA.
* Pre-market Notification, 510(k), unless exempt.
* Pre-market Approval (PMA), a much more involved, costly and time-consuming process.
Wherever justified, the 510(k) submission process is the preferred method for obtaining marketing clearance in the U.S. But how is this decision arrived at? If the 510(k) route is justified, what is involved? What is the sequence of events? Whatâ€™s included? What is the desired format?
This seminar offers a detailed understanding of the 510(k) submission process, including the three types of 510(k)s and whatâ€™s involved in each; expected time frames, the post-submission review process, and the â€˜give-and-takeâ€™ necessary for success.
