Before new medical devices can go to market, myriad regulatory requirements need to be met. Accessing expertise in medical device regulatory affairs from early in product development can save costs, time, and frustration in the long run.
Experts in medical device regulatory affairs work with regulatory agencies and various in-house medical, technical, and operations professionals to ensure regulatory compliance of the new device at different stages of clinical trials (where applicable) and for market authorization. These consultants have in-depth knowledge of the requirements of the relevant regulatory agencies (e.g., FDA and EMA) and notified bodies, ISO 9001 and ISO 13485, and the requirements for certification marks such as the CE mark.
While some medical device companies will have these experts on staff, there are also consulting firms and freelance consultants who specialize in this area. Specialist FDA consultants and 510(k) consultants in the US, and MDR 2017/745 consultants and IVDR 2017/746 consultants in the EU (IVDR has replaced the IVDD 98/79/EC), assist clients with medical device regulatory consulting specific to these markets.
These experts have input all along the medical device value chain, including not only R&D, clinical trials, and regulatory submissions, but also manufacturing, marketing, distribution, reimbursement, and post-market surveillance.
Experts in medical device regulatory affairs will typically have several years of experience working for a medical device company or regulatory agency. They usually have a PharmD or MD, or a Master’s or Ph.D. degree in an allied scientific field.
Medical device regulatory affairs specialists work either as freelance consultants or for medical device or pharmaceutical companies, regulatory agencies, medical device/MedTech consulting firms, or regulatory affairs consulting firms, among others. Their job titles vary and can include Regulatory Affairs Specialist, Regulatory Writer, MDR Consultant, and Regulatory Affairs Associate. While some may be generalists, others may specialize in e.g., in vitro diagnostics or digital health solutions.
To hire a freelance medical device regulatory specialist, the fee generally ranges from 40−150 USD per hour depending on the required skillset and the level of experience necessary.
The hourly fee can be negotiated upfront based on the estimated number of project hours, or a flat fee (for projects of a defined scope) can be discussed. If you need short-term/temporary access to these specialists, then hiring a freelance medical device regulatory consultant on our platform is a convenient and cost-effective way to harness their expertise.
The best way to attract the top Kolabtree freelancers in this field is to make your project description informative. You will need to provide information on the following:
- Skills required (e.g., expertise regarding the MDR regulatory guidelines in the EU)
- What the project area is (e.g., expansion of the market for a new medical device)
- What the project entails (e.g., medical device registration consulting for the EU market)
- What the deliverables are (be specific about what you need the outputs to be)
- Duration of the project (provide an estimate of how many hours work you will need per week/by when you need the project to be completed)
- By when you need to hire (having more leeway on this will give you more time to choose the best expert for your needs)
- Your budget (per hour or fixed fee)
- If you are unsure what exactly is required, providing as much detail as possible will allow the experts to still make an informed bid for your project and suggest the best routes forward.
Our platform makes it easier than ever before to connect and collaborate with medical device regulatory compliance experts.
