What you will learn in our STeP vs Breakthrough Device Designation Webinar

This webinar will explain the advantages associated with receiving approval for the STeP application or receiving Breakthrough Device Designation. You will also learn what the required contents and format are for both submissions. Both are submitted to the FDA electronically as an FDA eCopy (i.e., not eligible for FDA eSTAR yet). However, the first document in either submission is unique, because it includes your justification for meeting the criteria for either status.
