Summary: On November 6, 2019, the FDA will host a webinar on the Safer Technologies Program for industry and others interested in learning more about the Program and draft guidance.

Background: The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued a draft guidance outlining the vision for the Safer Technologies Program for Medical Devices. Once the guidance is finalized, the program will be a voluntary pathway for certain medical devices that is expected to significantly improve the safety of currently available treatments or diagnostic devices for diseases or conditions that are less serious than those eligible for the Breakthrough Devices Program, but the use of which may be associated with serious or life-threatening risks.
