Consultation on Regulatory Guidelines for Classification of Standalone Medical Mobile Applications (SaMD) and Qualification of Clinical Decision Support Software (CDSS)
The Medical Devices Branch (MDB) has released a draft Regulatory Guidelines for Classification of Standalone Medical Mobile Applications and Qualification of Clinical Decision Support Software (CDSS) for stakeholders’ consultation. This document draws reference from the international Medical Device Regulators Forum (IMDRF)’s guidance on Software as a Medical Device (SaMD) to provide an internationally harmonised approach to determining the risk classification of a Standalone Medical Mobile Application (SaMD).
In addition, the guidelines provide better clarity on qualification of Clinical Decision Support Software (CDSS) as medical devices as well as the regulatory approach for such software. We would like to invite our stakeholders to provide feedback on this document:
