Challenges in Medical Devices
Medical devices are regulated by laws that govern the safety and performance of devices across their lifetime, pre- and post-market. A risk-based classification system determines the pre- and post-market requirements for medical devices.
Medical devices with higher risks for the users require Notified Bodies to perform assessments on the safety and performance of the device. In this way, they ensure the continued safety and performance of medical devices, pre-, and post-market.
Manufacturers must ensure to only place medical devices in the market that comply with the legislative requirements. This requires documentation of the design, development, and manufacturing process of the device including sufficient clinical evidence that shows the device is safe and performs as intended.
By establishing a quality management system and documented procedures for manufacturing and post-market monitoring activities, the quality of the product is maintained leading to continued safety and performance of the medical device during its lifecycle.
Within the QbD Group, we have the knowledge and expertise to support manufacturers, distributors, and importers of medical devices in complying with the legislative requirements during the complete lifecycle of a medical device.
Our clinical, regulatory, and quality experts know what needs to be done to be able to comply with the legislative requirements by which a medical device can be safely placed on the market.
Furthermore, we keep supporting businesses by managing the processes that ensure the medical device continues to be safe and effective, before and after placing it on the market.
QbD has experience with both start-up businesses and large multinationals. We are up-to-date with the latest changes in legislation/standards and can provide project management services.
