Streamline the FDA Approval Journey: A Panel Discussion with the FDA, CLSI, and Abbott Laboratories

Includes a Live Web Event on 08/28/2024 at 1:00 PM (EDT)

The appropriate use of consensus standards can greatly streamline FDA medical device submissions and reduce the burden for the conformity assessment elements. With appropriate use of FDA-recognized consensus standards, developers of devices and LDTs can submit declarations of conformity (DOC) to meet some premarket requirements and reduce the amount of supporting data and information that are submitted to FDA. This webinar will feature a live Q&A discussion.

Speakers from each area will each present information on development and/or use of standards from their perspective:

  • Clinical and Laboratory Standards Institute (CLSI), for standards development process and standards available to industry.
  • FDA, for the appropriate use of standards.
  • Abbott, for the industry perspective on participation in standards development.
