Medical device companies operate in a complex global regulatory environment with continually changing standards. The medical device market is governed by different national and international standards and regulations. In order to sell products in the US and Canada, companies who manufacture, repackage, relabel and/or import medical devices must prove that the devices they market or sell are safe, effective and meet quality standards. For the US market, they are required to meet the Quality System Regulation 21 CFR 820. For the Canadian market, they need to meet quality criteria based on standards developed by the International Organization for Standardization ISO 13485.
This session gives an overview of the regulations and policies set by the FDA and CMDCAS for the pre-market approval, manufacture and post-marketing compliance of medical devices. It provides an understanding of the paths to obtain agency approval, the type of controls, systems and documentation they expect to see in place, how they perform inspections and the variety of outcomes.
