FDA, FTC and DOJ Enforcement of Medical Device Regulations
With the recent passing of the Food and Drug Omnibus Reform Act (FDORA) and other guidance and policy updates in medical device development, knowing and understanding all the new rules is crucial. And the FDA isn’t the only agency you have to worry about: the Department of Justice (DOJ) and the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) also play a part in enforcing new medical device rules.
FDA, FTC and DOJ Enforcement of Medical Device Regulations will give you the confidence to make the right moves to keep your medical devices in compliance.
Former DOJ attorney John Claud clarifies the overlapping enforcement authority among these entities and explains the recent changes, including the FDA’s expanded authority under FDORA for medical device companies, that delay, deny, limit or refuse an inspection, and DOJ’s changes to the ways it evaluates corporate criminal prosecution decisions.
The report features examples of enforcement actions by FDA, FTC and DOJ and explains the potential for civil and criminal enforcement actions targeting issues such as data privacy, cybersecurity and corporate compliance management.
