Each year the FDA receives several hundred thousand medical device reports of suspected device-associated deaths, serious injuries, and malfunctions. Medical Device Reporting (MDR) is one of the surveillance tools the FDA uses to monitor device performance, detect potential device-related safety issues, and contribute to benefit-risk assessments of these products. In this course, you will review the Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) consensus standards for domestic and international medical devices, their role in medical device safety, and the FDA Modernization Act of 1997. Additionally, the course reviews basic regulatory requirements including device registration and listing requirements, premarket notification, investigational device exemptions for clinical studies, the quality system, and labeling requirements. The final chapter of the course covers the expansion of the FDA's authority to promote innovation, increase stakeholder activity, and enhance the safety of the drug supply chain.
