Strategies for Utilizing the De Novo Submission Pathway

1 Hour Video | Bill Brodbeck, Steris Corporation

In August 2014, the FDA issued a draft guidance regarding the De Novo Classification Process. The guidance is intended to address the modifications to Section 513(f)(2) of the Food Drug and Cosmetics Act by section 607 of Food and Drug Administration Safety and Innovation Act . The modifications represent an effort to streamline product approval of low-moderate risk devices. Most notable changes of the new guidance include the elimination of a 510(k) requirement which considerably delayed the De Novo application process. Understanding the criteria, process and content for a successful De Novo application as well as the proper preparation and execution of pre-submission meetings is essential to regulatory affairs executives looking to incorporate this submission pathway into a medical device company’s regulatory strategies.
