FDA IDE - Investigational Device Exemption

An FDA IDE (investigational device exemption) permits an investigational device to be used in a clinical study in order to collect safety and effectiveness for a Premarket Approval (PMA) application. All evaluations of investigational devices, unless they are exempt, must have an FDE IDE before a study can commence.

It is difficult to obtain an FDA investigational device exemption if pre-clinical study data and other research and design material is not in order and under control. Medical device companies need to ensure that their processes and systems are effectively planned and effectively automated for best results.

To Be Successful with FDA Investigational Device Exemptions

To be successful in any phase of the development and testing of a medical device, a company must have integrated solutions for CAPA, training, customer complaints, and nonconformances according to FDA IDE. An automated system for document control and document management (see information on MasterControl Documents) is equally important. This ensures the integrity of a company's documents and processes.
