Regulatory Affairs and Compliance for Medical Devices

Medical devices can only be marketed successfully and legally if you as a manufacturer meet the regulatory requirements of the target market. These requirements are diverse and complex with the MDR (Medical Device Regulation, EU regulation for medical devices) and other country-specific regulations.

With Metecon, you get the full range of compliance services to optimally support you throughout the entire product life cycle of your medical device: in the development of new products, in the technical documentation according to MDR, in the maintenance of existing medical devices, in verification and validation, market entry into new target markets, market monitoring and in the optimization of your quality management processes.

Regulatory Affairs and Compliance for IVDs

In vitro diagnostics (IVDs) are medical devices regulated in a separate regulation (In vitro diagnostic regulation, IVDR). The efficient interaction of the various quality management processes should result in safe and effective products and maintain them throughout the entire product life cycle.

Metecon advises and supports you on IVD regulatory compliance at all levels and at any point in the product life cycle in order to meet the requirements of the IVDR and other country-specific regulations: in the development of a new IVD, in the maintenance of existing IVDs, in market entry into new target markets, in market monitoring (performance evaluation, clinical performance studies, PMS and PMPF) and in the optimization of your quality management processes.

"Regulatory-Software/Software-Regulatory": Metecon-DigiLab interprets for RA digitization

Metecon's new DigiLab brings medical device manufacturers and RA software providers together: DigiLab translates manufacturers' regulatory requirements into vendors' technical solutions. Since 2019, the DigiLab team has tested 30 softwares at its own expense and thus objectively. DigiLab's ever-growing software selection ensures that the individual best software for the medical technology manufacturer is quickly found. This shortlist is then tested with all stakeholders and implemented after a successful trial run.

There are enough good RA software solutions, but the demand for them is still low. The reason: the providers of software tools for regulatory affairs do not understand the complex requirements of medical device manufacturers, and the RA managers on the manufacturer side do not have in-depth IT knowledge. The result: communication problems and the uneasy feeling on the manufacturer's side that a large project is on shaky ground from the start. So they put digitization on the back burner.

A bad decision, according to Metecon CEO Alexander Fink: "The digitization of RA has to come. The error rate of previous Excel and Word solutions is high, capacities in the departments are lacking, and personnel bottlenecks will continue to exacerbate the situation in the future: There is no other solution in the medium term than to digitize regulatory affairs workflows."

At DigiLab, Heike Krüger is responsible for selecting the appropriate software providers and supporting and moderating the selection and implementation process. She knows the decisive advantages of DigiLab compared to the self-initiated search for suitable software by the companies themselves: "My team and I have been in dialog with the software manufacturers for two years. We have seen 30 demo versions and put relevant solutions through their paces. What company would invest in this effort in advance for research purposes alone?"

The objectivity of the DigiLab when advising and working with customers is very important to Heike Krüger: there are no liabilities whatsoever between the software vendors and Metecon; the tools that made it into the DigiLab were tested objectively, i.e. with a deliberate waiver of commissions in the case of brokerage. Thus, she and her team are completely independent in their recommendations.

Since DigiLab customers can save themselves the market analysis, they start directly with the DigiLab team into the three phases of software implementation of digitized RA solutions:

  1. Pre-selection of relevant software tools based on the manufacturer's needs (short list);
  2. Moderated selection process in the Metecon DigiLab:
    Software configuration is tested under realistic conditions, workflows are developed, processes are run through: All stakeholders - RA and IT departments as well as employees of different country groups - are given a computer workstation in the real Mannheim DigiLab. Based on the prior analysis of specific company processes, DigiLab customers test the configuration of the software for their respective roles;
  3. Trial operation and subsequent implementation:
    Trial operation continues at computer workstations in the DigiLab or directly in the company. For the implementation, the DigiLab team develops an individual procedure strategy and implements it together with the software provider of choice for the customer (the medical device manufacturer).
For Alexander Fink, the advantages of the DigiLab are obvious: "Imagine being able to significantly reduce the time and capacity required for your digitization project. After implementing your software tools, you will not only reduce the number of errors, optimize costs and finally have all information available regardless of location thanks to digitized RA processes, but you will also be able to accelerate approval for your product and simplify market monitoring: So what's stopping you from finally starting to digitize?"

Heike Krüger and her DigiLab team are continually expanding their range of services: for example, there is now also a selection of PMS software for database searches, literature searches and editing, surveys, PMPF, PMCF; the next additions will be risk management and QM software.
