Current Regulatory Thinking In Reprocessing Presentation Transcript

  • 1. Current Regulatory Thinking in Reprocessing Steven J. Elliott Principal Medical Research Manager NAMSA
  • 2. 2 Overview  Standards and Guidance  FDA Draft Guidance  Insights into the development and validation process  Managing new validation studies
  • 3. 3 Standards and Guidance
  • 4. 4 AAMI TIR 12:2010  Designing, testing and labeling reusable medical devices for reprocessing in healthcare facilities: A guide for medical device manufacturers AAMI TIR 30:2011  A compendium of processes, materials, test methods, and acceptance criteria for cleaning medical devices These two guidances are critical with reusable medical devices. They offer great direction and insight to the available processes and procedures you could use.
  • 5. 5 ANSI/AAMI ST79:2010 & A1:2010 & A2:2011 & A3:2012  Comprehensive guide to steam sterilization and sterility assurance in health care facilities  Offers insight on what you should anticipate when it comes to the use of your medical device(s) in the actual health care facility.
  • 6. 6 ANSI/AAMI ST81:2004/(R)2010  Sterilization of medical devices – Information to be provided by the manufacturer for the processing of resterilizable medical devices, 1ed  U.S. version of ISO 17664
  • 7. 7 Draft Guidance for Industry and FDA Staff – Processing/Reprocessing Medical Devices in Health Care Settings: Validation Methods and Labeling  When finalized, this document will supersede “Labeling Reusable Medical Devices for Reprocessing in Health Care Facilities: FDA Reviewer Guidance”  Guides how FDA reviewers and inspectors/investigators are looking at reprocessing and reusable devices  Understanding and following this guidance will be critical to your success with FDA submissions and reviews on processed/reprocessed medical devices
  • 8. 8 FDA Draft Guidance
  • 9. 9 Validation Process – One important thing to recognize and understand about each processing/reprocessing step when it comes to the draft guidance
  • 10. 10 Cleaning  It is important to recognize that the most comprehensive instructions in the draft guidance for validation of a process is for cleaning efficacy
  • 11. 11 Disinfection  It is important to understand the Spaulding Classification of your device when worst-case use or foreseeable misuse is considered
  • 12. 12 Sterilization  It is important to know the FDA-cleared cycles, including the specified dry times
  • 13. 13 All validations of processing/reprocessing instructions provided to the end-user by the manufacturer should be conducted under the direction of a comprehensive validation protocol
  • 14. 14 All validations, in their own way, must address “worst-case” conditions when determining the challenge that will be presented to the processing/reprocessing procedures and the parameters of the study that will be conducted to validate those procedures
