Dental Laboratories - 3D Printing of PPE, an FDA Compliance Panel Discussion

This webinar will cover key issues related to dental laboratories who are trying to help the country in a time of need with COVID-19 by 3D printing PPE for the health care supply chain.

Depending on the type of device, there are different U.S. FDA requirements and compliance for manufacturers of PPE. Some PPE is Class I and some is Class II. For dental laboratories that are not already registered with FDA printing some PPE may require FDA registration. There may also be additional quality system measures that come with printing PPE in mass quantity as well as labeling requirements depending on the distribution channels being used.

The FDA provides some guidance at https://www.fda.gov/medical-devices/3d-printing-medical-devices/faqs-3d-printing-medical-devices-accessories-components-and-parts-during-covid-19-pandemic.
