Get the ultimate roadmap to navigate the complicated landscape of FDA medical device regulatory law

NEW 2016 AGENDA. This year’s FDA Boot Camp-Devices Edition has been revamped to provide both a “basic training” in FDA regulatory law, as well as “advanced training” sessions tailored to the application of this knowledge to real-life situations. Highlights from this year’s program include a “Ripped from the Headlines” panel, containing updates on key developments in the FDA regulatory bar, and an in-depth Post- Conference Master Class, delving into the hot-button topics of in vitro diagnostics, laboratory developed tests, companion diagnostics,and combination products.

ACI’s FDA Boot Camp – Devices Edition has been designed by leading regulatory attorneys to give professionals who work in conjunction with the medical device industry—such as products liability specialists, in-house counsel, business development executives, and compliance professionals—a strong working knowledge of core FDA competencies.

A distinguished faculty of top FDA regulatory device experts — a “Who’s Who of the FDA Bar” — will share their knowledge and give you critical insights on:

  • The organization, jurisdiction, functions, and operations of FDA
  • An overview of medical device regulations
  • The classification of devices and the concept of “risk-based” classification
  • Clinical trials and IDEs
  • The 510(k) clearance process – what you need to know now and what to expect in the future
  • The premarket approval (PMA) process, drug labeling, and promotion
  • General post-market controls and MDRs
  • QSRs vs. cGMPs and ISO
  • Mitigating the impact of enforcement actions
  • Recalls, product withdrawals, and FDA’s oversight authority
