The US medical device regulations include Part 820, the Quality System Regulation, but extend far beyond them. In order to understand the regulations, you need to look at more than just the quality management system. This course provides an overview and explains how the parts of the regulations fit together. The seminar helps you understand the four major parts of the US regulatory structure: laws regulations, guidance, and consensus standards.
Risk class and the panels, established by law, characterize medical devices in the US. Device types fall under regulations and product codes that determine the pre-market submission pathways and provide requirements for specific cases.
The Quality System Regulation, in Part 820, provides the quality management system required to market medical devices in the US. Device design, production, installation, and servicing fall under Part 820. This part of the regulations include management responsibility for the system, design requirements, purchasing, manufacturing processes and controls, release for distribution, record keeping, etc.
After release, a device is subject to a variety of other requirements ranging from UDI to complaint management to medical device reports. Each of these requirements is in a separate part of the regulations.
This course provides a comprehensive view of the regulatory requirements to help you understand the whole picture and provide effective implementation for your company.
Why Should You Attend:

This course provides explains how all of this fits together. Whether you are an experienced professional or a person just entering the field, this seminar provides the information you need to understand and stay current with the US regulatory structure.
