I have a client, that will be getting into class 2 medical device design and manufacturing. I need to brush up on the requirements for submitting technical reports...where do I head for that information?

barb,

Do you need info on 510k submissions? Or, reports from field tests? How about 803 or 804 submissions?

You can try:

http://www.fda.gov

to start or check out the FDA QSR section of my page below.

Regards,
Don

They are all set on 510k......something about a SIMCO report, or other similiar acronym. they are concerned about the work involved to do a report..I have no clue, and want to go in with a bit of homework done next week...I have been into the electronics of thier stuff....now I need to get imvolved with the end item, and associated regulations. Ordinarily I would find an expert to pass it to...but I decieded I wanted to learn it

went wandering around the FDA sites yesterday and found some real good and useful stuff...but not what I needed.

a bit of history:

Its a fairly new company, they have expanded their resources in a merger...which is how I came to know them. All of 4 people and me right now. They are in pre-production. They used to make a simple diagnostic instrument for opthmology purposes..they have enhanced and modernized (computerized) the product, and merged with a software guy and changed their name. It is level 2 'cause it shines lights into the eyes for diagnostic (glacoma) purposes....very limited invasive device...little to no risk, as the diagnosis does not result in critical/serious activities. They checked out the 510k and did not have to do another, but are concerned about a technical report for (what sounded like SIMCO) I may have to do for them, as well as coordinate the ISO 9001 and CE mark stuff. The CE mark testing is complete. Their ISO audit was a mess (same agency as the CE mark). From what I see in the report and their documentation, and the one room facility...they got taken over the coals by a in-secure auditor. (they have produced 2 prototypes to date. I am ok with some of it, and am sure i will fare pretty well once I understand the report I will have to do....they are looking for a commitment in time and cost so they can plan accordingly.....I get to be their "quality manager" adhoc.. if you will...I am interested in the medical device sector experience. But I don't want to short change them. They know I have little experience in this portion of the industry...(my medical device exp. comes from supplying critical components to a manufacturer of med devices, and helping him meet his requirements.) BUT I want to talk intelligently at least...when I go in next week.

I apologize for not responding to your last post sooner. I had document review Monday and Tuesday and was a 'little' busy.

Anyway, I have searched through all my references and cannot seem to find what you are looking for.

…once I understand the report I will have to do…
After this, I am sure the FDA site can help, but if not let me know. I will look through my stuff again.

BUT I want to talk intelligently at least…
I am sure that will not be a problem.

Regards,
Don

Barb,

You need to check the indications for use for this device. For different applications, such as details of your specific procedures, this can be Class 2 or Class 3 device. In addition, what type of "limitations" this device posibly create? What is the design changes from prior device?

FDA will consider device that monitor eye movement as Class 2, but ophthalmic suture is Class 3. Do you have enough information?

In reference to SIMCO? word, I know some devices required "registration" prio to ANY use. This can be this type of device.

Hope this will help,
Mike

Everything helps at this point Mike, LOL.

The device is a read only optical device. no suture. It bounces light off the eye to diagnois glaucoma, and measure deterioration. The changes are mostly upgrades and modernization..software enhancement, dos to windows, wand data entry, nicer case, more efficient electronics. They already cleared the 510k report ..they didn't need one. did I tell you it has the CE mark already? After getting familiar with the documents they gave me, I feel much better equipped to handle the project....now on to the heavy stuff....gotta land the job.

Barb-

If they have electronics upgrade, you want to check if someone really got a new 510(k) or one person in the office said "it's OK"??

Good luck, Mike
