Adverse Event Reporting
A Tale of Two Systems

Thursday, Dec. 17, 2020 • 1:30 p.m. - 3:00 p.m. EST

When an adverse arises as the result of a medical device, that incident needs to be reported — and when the device is being marketed in the U.S. and EU, it must be reported in both. That process is never simple but having to meet different requirements in the U.S. and the EU makes it more complicated. The forms are different, the obligations are different and the procedures are different.

During this Adverse Event Reporting: A Tale of Two Systems webinar on Dec. 17, you’ll find ways to make that challenging process more straightforward. Through Ombu Enterprise’s regulatory reporting paradigm, you’ll learn the similarities and differences between the two systems when it comes to triggers, timing, content, transmission, retention, custodian and access. You’ll get practical insights into the process and discover what methods your team should use to ensure compliance.

Dan O’Leary, President of Ombu Enterprises, will demonstrate these procedures with a hypothetical event that would be reportable in the U.S. and the EU. You’ll move through both forms with a side-by-side analysis of the obligations and steps, gaining the insights you need to complete a successful reporting document.

Webinar Takeaways:

  • Key requirements in adverse event reporting to regulators in the U.S. and the EU

  • Important differences between reporting systems in both regions

  • Recent changes in the adverse event reporting forms in the U.S. and the EU

  • Comparisons of the content expectations in the forms for both systems

  • The details of a report, including what triggers it, how much time a manufacturer has to report, what is included on the forms, how to share this information with a regulator, how long the report should be kept, who is responsible for reporting and who has access to the report

Adverse event reporting is never a simple process but having to do it in two places makes it twice as complicated. Get the knowledge you need to smoothly and appropriately report an event in both the U.S. and the EU through this webinar.
