  • Interaction with the FDA (pre-submission meetings, additional information requests, etc.)
  • GAP analyses of existing documentation
  • Preparation of 510(k) documentation and support during the submission process
  • Further steps required after approval (establishment registration and listing, US agent, US importer, FDA readiness and mock inspections, FDA inspections or other interactions with the FDA
  • Customized in-house training on all of the above topics
  • And many more
