One of our most popular seminars, continuously updated with the latest U.S. FDA and European Union requirements. Now expanded to a six-hour format. As U.S. companies go global, they must meet different product design documentation. The cGMPs mandate Design Control and the Design History File (DHF). In order to sell globally, the EU's CE-marking documentation is a requirement - the Technical File or Design Dossier under the old MDD, and the Technical Documentation requirements of the new MDR. Currently, they serve different purposes, support different goals, but the TD File is moving in the direction of the DHF.
And the DHF is adapting to some of the features of the TD File. And how / where do the DMR and DHR fit? Being aware of the similarities and differences in the files and their individual documents can further concurrent development and/or updates to both.
This seminar will examine the existing and proposed requirements for the U.S. FDA's DHF - including its derivative documents, the DMR, and DHR. It will consider the European Union's new MDR Technical Documentation requirements, which replace the old Technical File / Design Dossier. It will evaluate the documents' differing purposes/goals, as well as the two different device classification schemes, and CE-marking requirements. Required and desirable contents will be discussed.
Also considered: Areas requiring frequent re-evaluation/update; Similarities and differences; Future trends; Typical DHF Table of Contents; Technical Documentation Table of Contents; The importance and usefulness of the new "General Safety and Performance Requirements" (replacing the old "Essential Requirements"); Structure of the "Declaration of Conformity"; self-declaring or N-B reviewed and changes; parallel approaches to development. Finally, the differing approaches to file audits by the FDA and the Notified Body will be discussed.
