Medical Device companies operating in today’s highly regulated environment need comprehensive electronic document and content management systems and solutions that deliver robust functionality and support full compliance with ISO and regulatory requirements such as ISO 13485 and 21 CFR Part 11, yet they must still be easy to use, intuitive, and provide fast access to information. These systems must also be able to integrate with other 3rd party platforms for electronic publishing and submission to regulatory agencies world-wide, supporting all required formats and structures for the FDA, EMA, PMDA (Japan) and other global and individual country agencies. This includes supporting various formats and requirements such as PMA and 510(k) in the US, and also European directives such as Directive 93/42/EEC for Medical Devices and Directive 93/68/EEC for “CE Marking”.
