Why Classify Your Medical Device for The FDA?
May 10, 2017
Classifying your medical device with the FDA can seem overwhelming. It's important to take things one step at a time. There are three major classifications for medical devices under FDA law. It's crucial to understand why you need to classify your medical device.
What Requirements Should You Be Meeting While Designing or Manufacturing Your Device?
Learning about medical device classification before you design or manufacture your device can help the FDA approval process go smoothly. You can eliminate bumps in the road by anticipating what you'll need. Therefore, have it ready as you design and manufacture your device.
What Requirements Should You Be Meeting Before Submitting Your Device?
One imperative part of classifying your device is to know what requirements you need to be meeting before you submit your device to the FDA. Some classifications of devices don't have as many requirements that must be met pre-market, while others have a great deal. You should be a step ahead of the game when it comes to knowing what you need to do before you can sell your medical device.
Know how Much It Will Cost to Get Your Device to Market
Another helpful benefit of understanding FDA classification for medical devices is that it can help you better estimate how much it's going to cost to design, manufacture, advertise, and sell your product. For most people, this is a crucial piece of information that will help them determine whether or not they can actually bring their medical device to market.
