Top Risks To Human Factors Submissions And How To Avoid Them

November 17, 2020 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm

$10 – $25

Program Manager:

Eri Hirumi, Program Chairperson for OCRA



Jessie Huisinga, PhD


For the last 2 years, FDA has presented the statistics that only 4-11% of human factors (HF) submissions are acceptable upon first submission. This means 89-96% of HF submissions are not acceptable the first time they are submitted to FDA. When HF data are required for a regulatory submission, regulatory affairs professionals who desire a successful HF submission need to understand and be involved in certain critical aspects of the HF program and HF activities to ensure regulatory success. In this webinar, we will use case studies and activities to cover:


  • The top HF deficiencies in submissions cited by FDA
  • Impacts these deficiencies have on regulatory submissions
  • How to monitor HF activities or programs and identify risks to the regulatory submission
  • How to determine readiness for HF submission
  • Impacts of the coronavirus pandemic on regulatory HF programs and tips for handling the impacts


  • OCRA Members: $25
  • Non-Members: $100, includes 1-year OCRA membership
  • Government and Student Members: $10, with student/government ID
  • Non-Member Government and Student Rate: $45, includes 1-year OCRA membership
