Sterilization Shelf Life Webinar for 510k and CE Marking

In this Sterilization Shelf Life Webinar you will learn how to write a summary technical document (STED) for section 14 of a 510k submission that will also meet the requirements for a CE Marking technical file.

Why you should register for the Sterilization Shelf Life Webinar

The sterilization shelf-life section of a submission is not just a paragraph referencing the recognized standards that were applied. Sterilization validation must be completed in accordance with the most recent standard regardless of which market you are seeking regulatory approval in, but the process of reviewing the sterilization shelf life data is much more involved for some processes. You also need to include information a summary of the methods used, the number of samples, a justification for sample selection, acceptance criteria and a summary of the results.

For FDA submissions, you are not required to submit your complete test reports for sterilization shelf life validation but you must provide a thorough STED or the FDA reviewer will request complete reports. On-site pre-approval inspections are sometimes required while at other times a routine inspection is merely prioritized. For Notified Body (NB) submissions, some of the NBs require an additional audit of sterilization shelf life validations to be conducted by a trained microbiologist.

Shelf life testing has always been important for EU Technical Files and the testing must be in compliance with ISO 11607-1:2007, but the FDA released a new guidance document on August 8, 2016 specific to device modifications. This new guidance includes new information regarding changes to the shelf-life of a product and when a new 510k submission will be required due to a change in the expiration dating of 510k cleared products.
