STUDY OVERVIEW

Regulatory Affairs groups ensure that medical device companies comply with global regulations pertaining to developing and marketing medical device products. The effectiveness of a Regulatory Affairs group is, in part, tied to how well its responsibilities are delineated and the group itself is structured.

Best Practices, LLC conducted this benchmarking study to establish meaningful metrics and insights around the structure and roles of Regulatory Affairs groups at medical device companies.

This study presents benchmarks around organizational structure to provide insights around reporting lines and span of control. In terms of the role of Regulatory Affairs, the research study presents data showing the role (lead, support or no role) of regulatory, regulatory compliance and quality across 10 key responsibilities. There are also benchmarks around publishing and translation roles and the impact of 510(k) reform on regulatory resources Additionally, there are qualitative insights on these issues from regulatory leaders in the device sector.

Medical device regulatory leaders can use this study to compare their group structure and roles with those of leading medical device companies.

Translations are outsourced to third party vendors for most of the benchmark class. A global IT solution handles the storage of regulatory documents.
