MedTech Workshop on Design an Development of Medical Device as required by EU and FDA / EU Design Dossier

Date: 28 Jul 2010 - 28 Jul 2010

Venue: SIMTech Auditorium, Level 3


This seminar has been specifically designed for participants who are tasked to design and develop products and prepare the Technical File/Design Dossier conforming to the market access requirements of major countries that form the GHTF (Global Harmonisation Task Force) bloc.  Participants will gain a better understanding of the design and development processes to ensure that the Design History File is complete in terms of conformance to the requirements of major world-wide markets. Its correlation to the requirements of Technical File/Design Dossier will be emphasised in accordance with all the required harmonised standards applicable.

Design and Development
It is envisaged that to facilitate conformance to the harmonised medical device QMS (Quality Management Systems) regulatory requirements for the major world-wide markets, EU, US FDA and GHTF, design and development processes as part of EN ISO 13485:2003+AC 2007 Quality systems – Medical devices – System requirements for regulatory purposes need to be addressed and complied with. 

Design and Development flow of requirements from planning, inputs, outputs, review, verification and validation will be discussed in detail. Risk Management as used in the Design Input stage and as applied throughout the Product Realisation Stage will be highlighted. A functional understanding of Failure Mode and Effects Analysis (FMEA) will be provided in developing DESIGN and/or PROCESS FMEA to implement FMEA techniques.

EU Design Dossier
Whereas the expression 'Technical File" is for Medical Devices with Classifications I,IIa and IIB, the term "Design Dossier" is applicable to Class III devices. The short talk will include the structure, documentation and all the sections required with reference to MDD/93/42/EEC and Recommendation NB-MED/2.5.1 Technical Documentation. Comparison to the GHTF STED and the ASEAN CSDT (Common Submission Dossier Template) will be highlighted.
