Event Details

One of our most popular subjects, 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 U.S. FDA's CGMPs mandate Design Control and the Design History File (DHF) at 21 CFR 820.30. In order to sell globally, the EU's CE-marking documentation is a requirement -- the Technical FiIe or Design Dossier, as described in their Medical Device Directive. What are the requirements for each file. Currently they serve different purposes, support different goals, but the TF/DD is moving in the direction of the DHF. And the DHF is adapting to some of the features of the TF/DD. And how / where do the DMR and DHR fit? Being aware of the required content, as well as the similarities and differences in the files and their individual documents can further concurrent development and/or updates to both.

Why should you attend?
This seminar /workshop will examine the existing and proposed requirements for the U.S. FDA's DHF -- including its derivative documents, the DMR and DHR. It will consider the European Union's MDD TF/DD requirements, and evaluate the documents' differing purposes / goals, their similarities, 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 File or Design Dossier Table of Contents; The importance and usefulness of the "Essential Requirements"; Structure of the "Declaration of Conformity"; self-declaring or Notified-Body reviewed; Parallel approaches to development. Finally, the differing approaches to file audits by the U.S. FDA and the EU Notified Body will be discussed.

Who Will Benefit:
This workshop will provide valuable assistance to all regulated companies that need to implement, review and/or modify their Device History Files, Device Master Records, Device History Records, Technical Files / Design Dossiers, documents, activities / plan(s).
