What are U.S. FDA and EU MDR requirements for DHFs, DMRs, DHRs, and Technical Documents / Files? Formats, contents, and their commonalities, differences and interrelationships.

Required and desirable contents. Areas requiring frequent re-evaluation / update. Similiarities and differences, and future convergences and trends. Typical DHF Table of Contents, including Risk Management and Use Engineering. Technical Documentation File Table of Contents. The importance and usefulness of the "Essential Requirements". Structure of the "Declaration of Conformity"; self-declaring or N-B reviewed. Parallel approaches to development. The Device Master Record / Device History Record "tie in". Differing approaches to file audits by the U.S. FDA and a Notified Body. 

Why should you attend?

Global companies must meet different product design documentation for the U.S. and the European Union / Common Market. The cGMPs mandate Design Control and the Design History File (DHF). ISO 13485:2016 has identical requirements under Design and Development. In order to sell globally, the EU's CE-marking documentation is a requirement -- the Technical FiIe/Design Dossier and now Technical Documentation. Currently they serve differnt purposes, support different goals, but the TF/DD/TD now addresses components of the DHF. And the DHF has borrowed some features required in the TF/DD/TD. Being aware of the similarities and differences can further concurrent development / documentation, and/or updates to both. And what are DMRs and DHRs relationship to DHFs, TF/DDs?
