Is the de novo process right for a particular medical device?

Perhaps.

To help manufacturers decide, FDAnews is pleased to present a 90-minute webinar on Nov. 20 that will explain the new one-step de novo procedure and tell manufacturers what they must do to ensure that the petition includes all the data elements and supporting research the FDA requires.

Attend this session and our three expert de novo attorneys from Hogan Lovells' Philadelphia office will quickly bring manufacturers up to speed. Attendees will get the details of the key issues surrounding the new process:

  • FDA’s evolving view of substantial equivalence and de novo reclassification
  • When a de novo reclassification petition is appropriate
  • When and how to use the pre-submission process
  • Making effective risk/benefit arguments that will pass FDA muster
  • How the shift in timelines for review could affect the lifecycle planning and subsequent launch plans
  • What happens after an initial de novo clearance, both for subsequent modifications and for competitive products in the same classification
  • And more

Specifically, attendees will learn the key elements (and nuances) that will significantly improve the chances of getting the device cleared on its first review, including key questions that must be answered and information that must include in the petition, such as:

  • Should the device be regulated as Class I or Class II?
  • Is it subject to 510(k) requirements?
  • What must be included in the proposed special controls document
  • Supporting protocols and data
  • Summary of benefits and potential risks
  • Risk and mitigation information

And, attendees will find out what to say in the all-important “classification summary” that shows the manufacturer has thoroughly researched the legally marketed devices and concluded that no appropriate predicate exists.

With the new one-step process, the FDA is finally offering a tantalizing opportunity to get products approved and to market more quickly. Take full advantage of it. Sign up for this invaluable update on the new and improved de novo clearance process.
