Course Outline

Putting a Medical Device on the market in any territory requires the manufacturer to compile a file of technical documentation. This training course aims to teach delegates how to construct a file of technical documentation for regulatory submission. Delegates will learn what documentary evidence, and to what level of detail, is required in order to demonstrate a product’s conformity to the essential principles of safety and performance.

In this course we use the ‘STED’ (Summary Technical Documentation) format. This is a format which has been put forward by the Global Harmonisation Task Force (GHTF) which is intended to provide different Regulatory Authorities or Conformity Assessment Bodies with the same documentary evidence that a medical device conforms to the essential principles of safety and performance. The STED format is widely accepted by many Regulatory Authorities and Conformity Assessment Bodies and is recommended by us as a useful format for demonstrating regulatory compliance in one or more world territories.

The STED approach is a consistent and recognised format which can assist regulators in the ease and speed of their reviews which in-turn reduces review time. Therefore resulting in reduced time to market and costs for manufacturers. It also benefits those medical device companies wanting a regulatory submission that is recognised across different key territories.

Our experts will offer delegates advice, guidance and best practice on the detail of information required to assist you through the regulatory submission process.
