A definitive guide for entering the US market.


In this two-part webinar series, R&Q presents the definitive resource for bringing your medical device to market in the United States. This webinar (part 2) will focus on Class III devices. Part 1 was presented in January 2020 and focused on Class I and Class II devices; it's available on demand here.


This webinar is designed to help you create a comprehensive regulatory strategy that enables you to successfully enter the US market.

This webinar is not is a rehash of the regulations (we'll provide references, however).

We'll begin by looking at everything that needs to be included in a thorough regulatory strategy. While viewing the big picture can be daunting at first, it's a critical step to understanding the strategic process and formulating an efficient, cost-effective plan... that works.

Webinar breakdown:

  • PMA Overview (e.g. requirements, cost, timing)
  • How to determine if a PMA is necessary vs De Novo vs HDE
  • Evaluating alternative sources for clinical evidence
  • Discussion of PMA programs designed to help expedite patient access
  • Update on CDRH structure and how it affects the PMA review process

Considering the challenges related to EU MDR, this webinar series may be especially helpful to European companies considering the US as a new market.
