FDA Software Precertification Program: Fast Track to Regulating “Software as a Medical Device?”

October 24, 2017 by Kimberly C. Metzger, Partner
In July, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced its innovative Software Precertification Pilot Program (#FDAPreCert on social media) to evaluate a more efficient, risk-based approach to regulating digital health technology (DHT). The program is limited to software as a medical device (SaMD), software that performs its intended medical purpose independently of a hardware medical device. This is not to be confused with software in a medical device (SiMD, software embedded in a medical device) or medical device data systems (MDDS, technologies that receive, transmit, store, or display data from medical devices). The pilot will test precertification of a limited pool of SaMD developers with a demonstrated record of high-quality software design and testing.

Court Dismisses FTC’s Unfairness Claims Regarding Potential Data Breaches

October 3, 2017 by George A. Gasper, Partner
Several months ago, as part of the Federal Trade Commission’s continuing regulation of the Internet of Things (“IoT”) security practices, the FTC filed a complaint against D-Link Corporation (and DLS, its U.S. subsidiary), alleging that they failed to take reasonable steps to secure their routers and Internet Protocol cameras, which potentially compromised sensitive consumer information, including live video and audio feeds. The case was notable because the agency did not allege that particular breaches actually occurred, but rather that “the company failed to take steps to address well-known and easily preventable security flaws” and put “thousands of consumers at risk,” despite allegedly marketing its products as secure and supporting “the latest wireless security features.”


New Self-Driving Vehicle Legislation Cruises Onto Senate Floor

Two United States Senators introduced legislation on Sept. 28, 2017 to address the rapidly approaching reality of self-driving vehicles on American roads. The American Vision for Safer Transportation through Advancement of Revolutionary Technologies Act—or, more succinctly, the AV Start Act—paves the way for autonomous vehicles by establishing a regulatory framework to govern the development and implementation of this revolutionary technology. Like the Internet of Things Cybersecurity Improvements Act of 2017, which was introduced in the Senate in August, this latest legislative foray into the Internet of Things (“IoT”) is a bipartisan effort to get ahead of emerging technologies.
