Join us for an in-depth look at the changes to global regulatory strategy in times of uncertainty. The complexity of developing new medical devices is even more challenging than ever before given the need for relabeling existing products, navigating new regulatory pathways and increased competition for Notified Bodies. 

Most companies by now have completed their gap assessments and are actively implementing changes to their product development approach to become compliant with MDR and/or IVDR. The Regulatory implications of Brexit on the new medical device and IVD regulations add another layer of complexity to a global product development strategy. 

Our speakers will share with you their stories and key learnings of how they are navigating the changes in this challenging Regulatory environment. Regulatory compliance continues to be a moving target requiring mitigation workarounds and revisions to portfolio strategies. Join us to explore how to build a global regulatory strategy that is fit for today, and for whatever tomorrow may bring. Each presentation will last approximately 30-45 minutes, followed by a panel discussion and Q&A session.
