FDA and EU Postmarket Surveillance Process Evaluation and Gap Analysis

Many medical device and IVD manufacturers focus on premarket regulatory compliance activities but tend to downplay the importance of Postmarket Surveillance (PMS) compliance. Our team can help you examine your current PMS process and come up with a detailed plan to get you into compliance with FDA and EU requirements.



Let Our Team Answer These Key FDA & EU PMS Questions

  • What are the current FDA and EU postmarket requirements?
  • Does our current process meet these PMS requirements?
  • Are we collecting enough PMS data and is it the right data?
  • How do ISO/TR 20416, ISO 13485 and ISO 14971 overlap?

PMS is More Important to FDA, EU and Other Regulators Than Ever Before

Over the years, regulatory authorities have started placing far more emphasis on the full life cycle of medical devices and IVD’s, well beyond regulatory approval. Ongoing safety and performance monitoring is now critical. FDA inspectors and European Notified Bodies expect you to have a proactive process in place to monitor, collect and evaluate customer complaints and adverse events. Many manufacturers don’t and this can lead to problematic FDA 483 or Notified Body audit findings.

Let’s Elevate Your PMS Process

Whether you sell one device or one thousand, Oriel STAT A MATRIX helps medical device and IVD manufacturers evaluate their existing postmarket surveillance process, looking at existing procedures and offering detailed recommendations for improvement. We can do the same for you, digging deep to review your:

  • Existing postmarket surveillance plan (or create one for you)
  • Linkages between your QMS and risk management processes
  • Current PMS monitoring procedures and practices
  • Complaint handling procedures
  • Data collection, analysis and investigation methods
  • Framework for Medical Device Reporting (MDR) and trend analysis

Based on our findings, we will prepare a detailed gap analysis including clear, actionable steps your team can take to bring you into full compliance with the regulations and avoid thorny PMS issues during your next audit.
