What You Will Learn

Software changes frequently — and so do the expectations from regulatory authorities about the information required to support software. Well-defined indications and proper classification of the risk related to the software are crucial to setting the stage for the information required in the submission. Add in proprietary algorithms based on datasets, the use of off-the-shelf software, various amounts of clinical data and interconnectivity with other devices, and there is no doubt that software is going to get a lot of scrutiny in the regulatory approval process.

In this webinar, we briefly explore common findings from notified bodies and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and how you can avoid them!

Notified bodies and the FDA expect to see complete software documentation, but the following items can trip up even the most seasoned regulatory professional submitting a safe and effective device for review:

  • Inconsistency in the risk classification
  • Failure to follow the most current or active guidance
  • Not clearly mapping the requirements to the documents that are included
  • Inadequate clinical data

Using the collective knowledge from our entire team and hundreds of submissions, this webinar will provide the most common findings related to software:

  • FDA’s most common software findings
  • NB findings in technical file reviews
  • Post-market considerations
