Post-market surveillance including clinical follow-up, complaints, and vigilance handling, are vital in ensuring compliance with the EU medical device directives and are an essential component of a 13485 Quality Management System. Devices in pre-CE marking clinical investigations are subject to adverse event reporting that is comparable to post market vigilance reporting.
Proactive and reactive sources of information are a regulatory requirement to be incorporated in your post-market surveillance procedures applicable to all products. By developing a post-market surveillance plan you can target sources of information enabling a cost effective product launch. Obtaining the right post-market information will ensure continued compliance with the directives and identify consumer needs enabling continued product development.
BSI's “Post-market Surveillance and Vigilance” 1 day course is designed to help you identify the requirements of the European medical device directives (90/385/EEC, 93/42/EEC, 98/79/EC), standards and guidance documents to enable effective implementation of a post market surveillance system.
