On December 5, 2017, the FDA issued the final version of the guidance, “Technical Considerations for Additive Manufactured Medical Devices.” Additive manufacturing (AM), the broad category of manufacturing encompassing 3-dimensional (3D) printing, is an emerging technology. As a result, this leap-frog guidance is not intended to introduce new policy, but rather outlines the Agency’s current thinking about the technical aspects associated with AM processes, and provides manufacturers with recommendations for device design, manufacturing, and testing considerations for use when developing devices that include at least one additively manufactured component or additively fabricated step.
On January 10, 2018, the FDA held a webinar for industry to review the “Technical Considerations for Additive Manufactured Medical Devices” guidance document and answer questions.
As always, we appreciate your feedback; following the conclusion of the webinar, please complete a short survey about your FDA CDRH webinar experience. The survey can be found at www.fda.gov/CDRHWebinar immediately following the conclusion of the live webinar.
