The new EU Medical Devices and IVD Regulations Workshop

December 4, 2017
Washington, DC
Global, Regulatory

This one-day workshop goes into the details of how to transition your company, its CE marked devices and its supply chain, to the new requirements under the new EU medical devices and IVD regulations. These regulations have already entered into force in May this year and provide for a relatively short transition period with no grandfathering for devices or diagnostics that are already on the market. This means that you will have to plan to revisit the technical documentation, clinical evidence, risk management, supply chain organization and other CE mark relevant aspects of your devices and diagnostics and assess the gaps to achieve compliance under the new regulations. Where devices or diagnostics have to be certified by a notified body, this will have to happen again against the standards that are not yet completely articulated under the implementation process of the new regulations. 

The workshop will address the major changes brought about by the regulations, how these affect your devices and in vitro diagnostics, how to set up a transition plan that includes a gap assessment that addresses all the relevant points. As part of the workshop relevant templates (e.g. for a transition plan and a gap assessment) will be provided. The workshop is an excellent opportunity to learn and understand how to operationalize and execute transition to the new EU regulations from both a regulatory and legal perspective.
