September 8 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am CDT$149
It will also consider the European Union’s MDR Technical Documentation requirements, and evaluate the documents’ differing purposes / goals, as well as the two different device classification schemes. Required and desirable contents will be discussed.
Also considered: Areas requiring frequent re-evaluation / update; Similarities and differences; Future trends; Typical DHF Table of Contents; Technical documentation File Table of Contents; The importance and usefulness of the “General Safety and Performance Requirements” (the old “Essential Requirements”); Structure of the “Declaration of Conformity”; self-declaring changes and/or N-B reviewed; Parallel approaches to development. Finally, the differing approaches to file audits by the FDA and the Notified Body will be discussed.
Why should you Attend
One of our most popular webinars, continuously updated with the latest U.S. FDA and European Union requirements. As U.S. companies go global, they must meet different product design documentation. The cGMPs mandate Design Control and the Design History File (DHF).
In order to sell globally, the EU’s CE-marking documentation is a requirement – the Technical Documentation (TD). Currently they serve different purposes, support different goals, but the TD is moving in the direction of the DHF. And the DHF is adapting to some of the features of the TD, while each serve differing goals. And how / where do the DMR and DHR fit? Being aware of the similarities and differences in the files and their individual documents can further concurrent development and/or updates to both. ”
