9th Annual Medical Device and Diagnostic Labeling 

May 14-15, 2019 | Chicago IL

 

Julien Senac LNE Gmed

Dr. Julien Senac, Certification Project Manager, IVD specialist and Medical Device Design Dossier Evaluator at GMED North America will present the "In-Depth Analysis of the EU MDR and EU IVDR Impact on Labeling Operations." at the 9th Annual Medical Device and Diagnostic Labeling Conference, hosted by Q1 Productions on May 14-15, 2019 in Chicago, IL. Dr. Julien Senac will also join the panel discussion on "Clarifying Specific Areas of Concern with Notified Bodies"

The EU MDR and IVDR have a significant impact on labeling operations with the introduction of provisions pertinent to symbols, enhanced language requirements, increased IFU content, and new documentation pieces such as the patient leaflet and implant card. In order to fulfill compliance in a timely manner, labeling teams require greater and more precise insight into areas of ambiguity, notably in the interpretation of unclear provisions and how to prepare strategies when critical platforms such as EUDAMED remain to be implemented. In the effort to shed light into the most prominent and timely challenges for labeling teams, notified body representatives will answer questions directly submitted by participants ahead of the conference.

 

 Advanced EU MDR and CER Workshop

March 19th, 2019 | Boston, MA 

 

Florianne Torset Bonfillou LNE Gmed

Join Florianne Torset-Bonfillou, Director of Regulatory, Education and Quality for a discussion on “Enhanced post-market measures & the involvement of notified bodies in the reporting process”

The event will take place on March 19th and be hosted by MassMEDIC and Regulatory and Quality Solutions (R&Q).

Requirements for post-market surveillance have drastically changed under the EU MDR 2017/745. Manufacturers can no longer rely on a simple and systematic procedure to meet post-market surveillance requirements for their various types of devices –

MD manufacturers must now consider the unique aspects pertaining to each individual devices and assess how these may impact their post-market surveillance. Additionally, post-market surveillance activities must be an integral part of the clinical evaluation and risk management processes.

Data must flow between the CER, the risk management report, and the post-market surveillance which can be a challenge in large companies when it comes to the dynamics of communication between the different departments involved . So, how can manufacturers effectively implement all of this?

In this session, we will address the challenges manufacturers can face when implementing the EU MDR requirements for post-market surveillance. A panel of Experts will discuss the following questions:

       • How to implement the requirement in a simple and straightforward manner;
       • How to integrate CERs, PMS, and risk management processes and in what order?
       • Trend reporting strategies – what will be acceptable?
       • Do we include all CAPAs in reporting? Or shall only a small subset be included in the PSURs?
       • To what extent shall complaint reporting be? What should be assessed and how much should be included?
       • Post Market Clinical Follow Up (PMCF) – what can justify not doing it?

 

 

COMBINATION PRODUCT REGULATION CONFERENCE

February 28th- March 1st, 2019 | Arlington, VA

    

Waiss Faissal LNE Gmed

Join Waiss Faissal, a Certification Project Manager for Non Active Medical Devices, In- Vitro Diagnostic Devices, and the Drug Usefulness subject matter expert GMED North America for a presentation on the "EU MDR New   Provisions and Effect on Combination Products." This presentation will be held at the Combination Product Regulation conference hosted by Q1 Productions.

The EU MDR introduces a completely new approach to combination product regulatory compliance within the territory, spanning all operations from product development to testing and CE mark approval. With the transition period ending   in May 2020, regulatory affairs teams are prompted to revise and update strategies accordingly, demanding for a robust understanding of new provisions. Although both devices and pharmaceutical experts notice an increase in the   workload due to the impending deadline, pharmaceutical organizations are more heavily impacted and face the challenge of entering a completely new regulatory framework. Some key focus areas are:

     • Comparison between MDD vs MDR on combination products
     • Actors involved in combination products assessment
     • Change in the assessment process for drugs and devices
     • Impact of MDR “Article 117”

 The presentation will be followed by a panel discussion to share our knowledge and experience of the re-designation process.

2nd EU MDR implementation Conference

July 12/13 2018 I Alexandria, VA

Join Dr. Julien Senac, Certification Project Manager and IVD Product Assessor at LNE / G-MED North America, Inc. and Florianne Torset-Bonfillou for a discussion on “Engaging in the practical implementation of new labelling requirements under the MDR” and “revising post-market surveillance and vigilance”.

This event will take place during the 2nd EU MDR Implementation Conference hosted by Q1 productions, in Alexandria, Virginia.

With the new EU Medical Device Regulation, the importance of providing end-users with critical information for the safe and proper use of a medical device is taken to a new level. Requirements span new end-user and device-specific data impacting clinical and quality operations, new label formats, as well as an enhanced definition of labeling materials now extended to any published information about the product, impacting marketing. With such a prominent position given to labeling in the regulation, regulatory professionals must secure a clear interpretation of mandates to efficiently lead the progression towards compliance. Likewise, the revision of the post-market surveillance and vigilance impacts directly medical device manufacturers, with a new reporting frequency as well as the additional requirements with regard to post-market and vigilance, they need to establish a robust post-market data management plan.
