Have a passion for Regulatory Affairs? 

As the Director, Regulatory Affairs you will develop and lead regulatory strategies and implementation plans, in collaboration with project teams, and oversee all plans to a successful outcome.  You will liaise with the regulatory bodies or third-party service providers to understand requirements for successful submissions, clearances, and approvals for SEKISUI Diagnostics products.  You will manage, coach, and develop the regulatory team to ensure skills are aligned with a high performing organization.  Along with your team, you will support currently marketed products by reviewing engineering, product, and labeling changes and ensuring all compliance documentation is complete, accurate, and meets standards and regulations where the products are on-market.

You possess a depth and knowledge of IVD experience AND working with Clinical Affairs: protocol development, study modification, and final report approval. You have been instrumental in supporting the initiation of clinicals, sample preparation, targeted clinical outcomes (as related to a successful submission). You understand verification of submission intended use via clinical trials and/or clinical evaluations – ensuring the clinical outcomes will support the intended use, supporting but not managing the clinical trial or evaluation.

Additionally, in the event the Person Responsible for Regulatory Compliance (PRRC) is not available, you will act on their behalf.

To be successful in this role, you will use your extensive knowledge in IVD, global regulations, specifically USFDA, Canada, and EMEA, to develop strong regulatory strategies, create contingency plans, ensure timely decision-making, and drive accountability through project teams.  You will leverage your experience managing complex submissions and technical documentation (instrumentation, hardware, software and reagents) for US FDA 510(k), EU CE mark products, and Rest of World (ROW) submissions in accordance with global regulatory requirements.  You will utilize your understanding and application of both the design control process and the process to obtain Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments (CLIA) waivers.
