US FDA Launching New Premarket Approval (PMA) Pilot Program for High-risk Medical Devices

The FDA are currently setting up a pilot programme on several high risk medical devices, they hope that the outcome of this programme will allow them to have a more efficient PMA process.

Currently the authority is searching for nine applicants who will be enrolled from the end of September 2017 to Dec 2018, as soon as nine suitable applications are accepted the pilot will begin. It has been noted that the FDA are focusing on the quality issues of the pre-market process in order to drive down high-risk device recalls, with the ultimate goal to streamline the complex and expensive PMA process without compromising controls for safety and effectiveness of devices.

This initiative could lead to less costly and time-consuming PMA requirements for manufacturers of high-risk devices.

Here at Instem we understand that the PMA process can be long, costly and error prone. We hope that this pilot is successful and our customers can get their products to market more efficiently.

FDA Releases Specialized CVM-only Version of eSubmitter Tool

In the news this week the Center for Veterinary Medicine have announced a veterinary specific eSubmitter tool. This new piece of tech is a step away from the FDA eSubmitter program and will be the new tool to submit to the FDA Electronic Submission Gateway.


The FDA describe this new submitter as a “question based submission tool” with the use of templates to enhance the user experience. The benefits focus on the specificity to the veterinary user and a better response time on bug fixes and enhancements.

It is worthy to note that you can continue to use the current FDA eSubmitter until March 2018 after this date the FDA eSubmitter will no longer support CVM submissions. Similarly as of Dec 2017 the FDA eSubmitter will not allow CVM submissions to be created within the FDA eSubmitter tool. This new CVM tech is available as of the 21st Aug 2017.
