When:  Oct 13, 2021 from 12:00 to 13:00 (ET)

Member: $10

Developing a flexible and adaptable regulatory strategy is key to supporting the development of safe and effective 3D printed medical devices that help improve the quality of life for patients. The complexity of developing medical devices using 3D printing technology is challenging, given the need to navigate the latest U.S. regulatory pathways. This webcast will discuss the U.S. pathway for approval and will highlight the global regulatory landscape for obtaining approval of 3D printed devices in Europe, Australia, and Canada. 


Learning objectives for attendees include:

  1. Understand the history of regulations governing the development of 3D printed medical devices and the impact of warning letters that shaped the regulations.
  2. Learn about the U.S. pathway for approval and how it differs for Europe, Canada, and Australia.
  3. Obtain insights on how the regulations need to change to address ongoing industry challenges for getting products to market.
