Post-Market Surveillance requirements under the new European Medical Device Regulations

LNE G-MED webinar videoIn the current Medical Device Directives, Post Market Surveillance is defined in Chapter I, Article 2, (40a), as the action requiring Medical Device Manufacturers to “proactively collect and review experience gained from their devices placed on the market.”

With the entry into force of the Medical Device (MDR) and In Vitro Diagnostic Regulations (IVDR) on May the 25th, 2017, new requirements impacting Post Market Surveillance (PMS) have raised interrogations amongst Medical Device Manufacturers. While a continuous evaluation and improvement of the process is at the very heart of this change, the Regulations introduces more incisive and prescriptive measures based on device risk level for both the MDR and IVDR.

Control of Critical Suppliers for Medical Devices: ISO 13485:2016 perspectives

The publication of ISO 13485:2016 in March last year reinforced the notion of control of supply chain for Medical Device manufacturers.

With a clear reinforcement of the risk-based approach in the entire ISO 13485:2016, it is no exception that the Purchasing section (7.4) includes new provisions to strengthen Supplier control.

Requirements are mostly written towards the medical devices legal manufacturer to control its suppliers, however it is critical that suppliers are also aware about them as they could also be ISO 13485 certified.

The updated standard gives more details about what companies shall consider in the process of evaluation, selection and monitoring of their suppliers. It not only amends the management of Supplier relationships, but also puts in perspective the whole process of supplier selection.

The Medical Device and In Vitro Diagnostic Regulations (MDR and IVDR): Changes and Impacts

In this webinar, you will learn about the new Medical Device and In Vitro Diagnostic Regulations (MDR and IVDR): Changes and Impacts for Medical Devices manufacturers. 

The final publication for both regulations is expected for no later than May 2017.

The manufacturers will phase out from the respective directives governing their currently approved medical devices through a transition period of three years and fully embrace the requirements of the MDR, which will take full effect in 2020.

The same is expected for In Vitro Diagnostic Medical Device Manufacturers with a transition period of 5 years, and the IVDR becoming enforceable by the end of 2022.

Medical Devices Containing Ancillary Medicinal Substances

Developing and marketing a medical device combined with a medicinal substance requires an acute understanding from the manufacturer of its obligations and the requirements involved with putting such a device on the EU market. In this webinar, you will learn about:

• The key definitions and clauses required to be fulfilled for the different directives
• The actors and different aspects of the submission
• Understanding the classification of device-drug combination products

The IVD Directive and Borderline Products

Choosing the correct regulation can sometimes be challenging when a device can potentially be classified under more than one regulation. Products that fall into this category are commonly called “Borderline” products. Determining the correct regulatory path becomes crucial for them as it can lead to higher costs and a hazier market access path. In this webinar, we will discuss:

• The key definitions within the MDD and IVDD
• The clauses required to be fulfilled for IVD devices
• Scenarios for exclusion from the IVDD
• Specific examples of borderline IVD devices
• Guidance documents
