What Medical Device Professionals
Need to Know for Premarket Approval

Wednesday, Sept. 30, 2020 • 11:00 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. EDT

What pathway should you consider for your premarket submission? 510(k)… De Novo… Premarket approval (PMA)… or emergency use authorization (EUA)?

Which one will work best for your device? Have you prepared for the application and data requirements?

Determining the best system to move these technologies forward can be complex.

This presentation will arm you with the knowledge you need to tackle the FDA’s premarket approval and clearance processes around in vitro diagnostics (IVDs), laboratory developed tests (LDs) and other medical devices. These point-of-care products require unique interactions with the FDA and it’s important to determine how to best navigate these regulatory expectations from the start.

FDA experts Seth Olson and Susan D. Tiedy-Stevenson will share advice about FDA applications and data requirements. Through their experienced perspectives, you’ll gain insights on clinical laboratory improvement amendments (CLIA) categorizations and waivers, along with the ways the Verifying Accurate, Leading-edge IVCT Development (VALID) Act will change testing. We’ll also consider how software can be deemed a medical device and strategies around FDA pre-submission meetings.
