IEEE Consultants’ Network of San Diego

Topic: Medical Device Development: Standards and Guidance and Rules, Oh My!

Speaker: Warren Craycroft.

The field of regulated medical device development can be quite daunting to the neophyte and the experienced practitioner alike. The magnitude of standards, regulations, and guidance can appear to be a burdensome overhead that at best must be endured and at worst, gamed and minimized. In this talk, the speaker offers a different view: that medical device regulation is a compilation of valuable lessons learned that have the same real-world legitimacy as fire safety and building codes. We’ll look at the history of the current regulatory environment, tracing its roots to past accidents and recalls, and discuss the ever-increasing volume of regulation as a knowledge management problem to be eagerly embraced, rather than a burden to be endured.

Speaker Bio

 Warren Craycroft has nearly 30 years of experience in medical device development in research and development, quality assurance, and regulatory affairs roles in start-up medical device companies.  A recurring theme in these roles has been establishing a culture of quality assurance and regulatory compliance in these small-headcount emerging companies.
