After Brexit: The New UKCA and UKNI Marks. What Medical Device Manufacturers Need to Know

Online

Brexit is now over and as of January 1, 2021, medical device manufacturers are officially in a transition period until June 30, 2023. However, you must understand the current requirements for UK MHRA registration, obtaining the services of a new UK Approved Body, and working toward affixing the new UK CA or UK NI mark on medical devices entering Great Britain. Further, UK MHRA will not be utilizing the EU MDR or EU IVDR after the transition period but drafting brand new legislation for their new Medical Device/IVD approval scheme. While everyone is focused on the EU – do not forget the Great Britain market and these new requirements.

Clinical Evaluation Reports: A dive into the world of CERs and MedDev 2.7/1 Rev 4

Online

Clinical Evidence Reports (CERs) represent a key component to technical files, registration, and compliance in many countries. CERs are meant to provide a comprehensive overview of the medical device design and composition, intended usage and applications, clinical trials analysis and outcomes, relevant literature reviews, protocols and instructions for use. All of the supporting clinical evidence should be closely reviewed through a systematic critical appraisal process. The transition to MDR and IVDR in Europe has accelerated the need for up-to-date Clinical Evaluation Reports (CERs) that pass muster with multiple requirements including MedDEv 2.7/1 REV. This applies to every medical device sold in Europe irrespective of the risk classification and experience in the market. In the presentation, we will cover the nuances to meet requirements for the major countries/regions: including Europe’s Notified Bodies, Australia’s TGA, China’s NMPA, Brazil’s ANVISA, and Canada’s Health Canada. We will share about best practices and lessons learned for each of these regulatory reviews. We will also cover the new post-market surveillance requirements required by MDR that affect the CER.

Remote Monitoring and How to Save Cost

Online Webinar

Risk-based monitoring including remote monitoring, is an approach that has been successfully applied now for many years. With increased requirements for conducting post-market clinical follow-up studies and registries, how can monitoring be optimized so you continue to ensure compliance and accuracy of data that will be accepted by the notified bodies or regulators while keeping costs reasonable? Risk-based remote monitoring combined or not with onsite activities and a strong risk management structure, along with well-designed compliant tools can make the whole process much faster and reduce the amount of financial and human resources needed.
