SPEAKER: David R. Dills
Major postmarketing vigilance revisions are now in force. A revised medical device guidance document on postmarketing vigilance (MEDDEV 2.12-1 rev 6) came into force on January 1, 2008.
Providing more guidance than the previous version, the new document includes new reporting terminology and concepts such as “periodic summary reporting” and “trend reporting.” In addition, the terms “advisory notice,” “near incident,” and “recall” have been eliminated or replaced. Although MEDDEVs are not legally binding, it is likely that all European Competent Authorities will follow the new guidelines and will expect organizations involved in the management and reporting of adverse incidents to follow them as well. This session will address topics such as new definitions; the guideline’s extended scope, reporting criteria/timelines, filing safety notices and field safety corrective actions, and more.
The new guidelines contain some controversial aspects, including the extension of their scope and the new approach of immediate reporting unless delays can be justified. However, they also provide additional clarity and more-detailed advice in many areas. The European Database EUDAMED also is described. Periodic or trend reporting under certain conditions is now allowed, as a result of the integration of certain GHTF concepts. Although a transition period was allowed until the end of 2007, the revised guidelines will undoubtedly result in the need for manufacturers, authorized representatives, and distributors to make changes to their SOPs and other documents.
Areas Covered in the Session:
– Examine the latest changes to MEDDEV and Medical Device Vigilance and impact on medical device manufacturers
– Recognize the “new” terminology and concepts
– Report incidents as recommended by the guidance
– Examine why Global Harmonization Task Force (GHTF) is an integral component of the new postmarketing vigilance guidelines
– Manage expectations for reporting and timelines
– Recognize which amendments impact the European vigilance system
– Interpret the new guidelines that cover incidents involving devices that carry the CE mark and devices that do not carry the CE mark
– Submit periodic summary reports of incidents to Competent Authorities
– Examine controversial aspects of the guidelines, including the extension of their scope and the new approach of immediate reporting unless delays can be justified
– Identify the conditions under which reporting is not required and why they have been expanded and clarified with no significant changes, although one reason has been removed
