Research Regulations: So you have your investigational medical device. Now what?… Need an ITA?

Research Regulations: So you have your investigational medical device. Now what?… Need an ITA?

Please welcome and join presenter Julie Taing as she remotely presents an overview of the Investigational Testing Application (ITA) Program, which is governed by Canadian law in accordance with Part 3 of the Medical Devices Regulations (MDR). The presentation will discuss at high-level when an ITA is required (for Class II, III and IV unapproved medical devices) and what that really means for “manufactures”; how to apply for an ITA; and what to expect once your application is in. Julie will also provide contact information for Investigators to obtain additional support, review and advice from the Medical Devices Bureau.

Learning Objectives

  • Understand the Medical Devices Bureau and regulations pertaining to investigational testing of medical devices
  • Clearly communicate situations when an ITA is required, or not
  • Comprehend the policies and procedures required for new ITA authorization and revisions
