For most medical devices, the road to market includes a gate for 510(k) clearance before the device can be marketed.  Completing the product development process and creating the deliverables necessary for submission can take months if not year.   However, once development is completed delays in getting to market can impact the bottom line.   In 2015, only 22% of devices where cleared within the initial 90 day review window.  Only about 60% where cleared within 6 months.  This webinar will explain the 510(k) submission process and provide tips on planning for a successful submission.
