Your participation in the regulatory community is vital. Currently, RAPS Chapter in-person events are converted to webcasts so that regulatory professionals have online access to valuable knowledge necessary to understand the daily impact on our industry. RAPS is offering this webcast for free to members and $20 for non-members.


Learn about the newest initiative in FDA’s Standards and Conformity Assessment Program: the Accreditation Scheme for Conformity Assessment (ASCA). Under the ASCA Pilot, FDA will accredit qualified testing laboratories to certain FDA-recognized consensus standards, with the expectation that less information and supporting documentation will be needed in medical device submissions, thereby streamlining the review process. 

During this session, the FDA will introduce the ASCA Pilot expectations and describe how the Pilot will work to improve the device approval and clearance processes. It will close with practical advice on how to effectively participate in the ASCA Pilot and a Q&A session.
