Event Description

Description :

The FDA expects companies to perform meaningful, results driven Design Control activities as defined in 21 CFR 820.30, for both new and changed devices. The company is held fully responsible for deciding when to start and the specific documentation to meet the 9 requirements. A review of recent information from the Agency, including recent Working Group findings and Reports, as well as other goals of the Agency that have already been translated into action in the field in the past several years, provide further direction in areas of concern and what to expect in the future.

Beyond compliance, these 9 elements can be a powerful tool in reducing "time to market" / "fast cycle" product development. In addition, growing high-profile field problems indicate that design control and it’s effect on regulatory review activities are not yet fully utilizing the power of current risk management tools, which must be a part of the design control process -- the ISO 14971 "model". A growing push by the Agency to strengthen the 510(k) process, and review existing devices with above normal adverse events are additional concerns, to be factored into the design control process.

New “Agile” development methods bring added concerns. The resulting documentation can have other far-reaching uses in a company. Proper design control requires a defined "start" date, and the systematic / SOP-defined implementation of formal methods with documented, and defensible, rationale. When properly executed, it can also be a powerful product development project management tool.
