510 (k) submission
Instructor: David Lim
Product ID: 500030
The 510(k) is the most common pathway to market for medical devices including in vitro diagnostic medical devices (IVDs). The 510(k) premarket submission is to demonstrate that the subject device (to be marketed or new device) is substantially equivalent (as least as safe and effective) to a legally marketed device (predicate device). During the 510(k) preparation, improving 510(k) submission quality can save significant amount of your business time, money, and resources by avoiding encountering lots of hurdles during the review process in a predictable and foreseeable manner.

To bring a product to market fast through the 510(k) program, it is imperative the medical device manufacturers understand the 510(k) processes with awareness of potential hurdles and be able to prepare 510(k)s in a way to proactively expedite the review process for timely clearance, potentially saving millions of dollars to the businesses. This 60-min webinar will greatly help you improve your 510(k) submission quality, inspiring you to take or choose to take different approaches when preparing your next 510(k)s.
