Recently, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued a final guidance document, Requests for Feedback on Medical Device Submissions: The Pre-Submission Program and Meetings with Food and Drug Administration Staff. The Pre-Submission Program replaces and improves on the pre-IDE Program by expanding the program to include all types of feedback requests prior to any medical device submission.

The final guidance establishes a structured process for sponsors who submit pre-submission requests and for FDA staff and managers involved in their review. . It also explains, in detail, the Q-Submission structure the FDA is using to track feedback mechanisms and outlines each interaction type, including what is and is not tracked as a Q-Submission.

On February 26, 2014, the FDA will hold a webinar to help explain the guidance and to provide a forum for asking questions you may have regarding this guidance. Registration is not necessary.
