Duration: 75 Minutes

Control of medical device changes and a current 510(k) are big issues in recent FDA studies. Companies are held fully responsible for deciding when a new 510(k) filing is warranted. Often this is a difficult decision process. Effective change control and the power of current risk management tools must be a major part of such an analysis.
Submitting a 510(k) for Device & Software Changes
Instructor: Carolyn Troiano
Product ID: 508234
The U.S. FDA has published two New Guidance Documents in October 2017, "Deciding When to Submit a 510(k) for a Change to an Existing Device", 1) on the device itself, and 2) on device software. These documents attempt to provide companies tools to perform meaningful, results driven 510(k) / change analysis activities. This is part of a growing push by the Agency to strengthen the 510(k) process. The addition of simple tools will assist companies in implementing formal, documented, repeatable methods with defensible rationale for their decisions on when one or several changes may require a new 510(k) submission.

  • Common software changes that might require a 510(k) filing

  • Software guidance highlights
