Medical Device Vigilance
Medical device vigilance refers to the ongoing monitoring and reporting of adverse events associated with the use of medical devices to identify potential problems with devices and ensure their safety and effectiveness.
Both FDA and EMA have stringent Medical Device Reporting (MDR) regulations that outline the requirements for reporting adverse events and incidents related to medical devices. These regulations specify the information that must be reported, the timeframes for reporting, and the procedures for reporting.
Under the MDR and IVDR, manufacturers, authorized representatives, importers, and distributors of medical devices are required to establish and maintain a post-market surveillance system. This system must include procedures for the collection and evaluation of data related to the safety and performance of their devices, as well as the investigation and reporting of serious incidents and field safety corrective actions. This includes monitoring and reporting of adverse events and incidents, as well as conducting studies and assessments to evaluate the performance of their products. In this aspect, device tracking and labeling plays an important role to track and identify products in the event of a recall or other adverse event.
In addition, manufacturers must appoint a person responsible for regulatory compliance (PRRC) who is responsible for ensuring that the post-market surveillance system is established, implemented, and maintained in accordance with the MDR or IVDR.
The MDR also requires manufacturers to report serious incidents and field safety corrective actions to the European database on medical devices (EUDAMED). The reporting requirements include the submission of a summary of the incident or corrective action within 15 days, followed by a detailed report within 30 days.
