Regulatory Developments in Medical Devices: Your Questions Answered

28 July

Across the EU, UK and China, significant changes to the existing medical device regulatory landscape are underway or fast approaching.

In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, with new regulation in the EU and Asia, and Brexit in the UK, many manufacturers have questions about the implications of recent and forthcoming changes, such as:

  • What is required to comply with the EU MDR?
  • How can I prepare for the EU IVD Regulation coming into force in May 2022?
  • What are the continuing implications of Brexit?
  • Does the EU’s new Directive on Representative Actions increase the risks for my business?
  • How does China State Council Order 739 affect medical device registration and approval?

 Join our webinar to hear more about these developments, or submit your questions in advance for discussion by our expert panel.
