About the Seminar

FDA 510(k) LIVE WebinarThis presentation will walk you through how to prepare and submit a traditional premarket notification [510(k)] for successful clearance from US FDA. The premarket notification [510(k)] is the most common pathway to market for medical devices including in vitro diagnostic medical devices (IVDs).

The section [510(k)] of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FD&C Act or the Act) describes the 510(k) requirements. The 510(k) premarket submission is made to US FDA to demonstrate that the subject device (to be marketed) is substantially equivalent (as least as safe and effective) to a legally marketed device (predicate device).  In other words, a 510(k) must demonstrate that a proposed product is substantially equivalent to another, legally marketed medical device that is also lower-risk and is not subject to premarket approval (PMA).

Over the years, the 510(k) program has significantly evolved, affecting the 510(k) decision-making process.  On July 28, 2014, FDA issued the finalized 510(k) guidance integrating a total of 400 comments received in response to the Draft Guidance issued on December 28, 2011.  To expedite the process of bringing a product to market through the 510(k) program, it is imperative the medical device makers understand the recent changes, prepare and submit a quality 510(k) in a way to expedite the review process for fast and successful clearance.

In this 60-min presentation, the speaker will guide you through the details of the required elements in your 510(k) submission for successful clearance.
