Navigating MDR/IVDR Implementation in the Wake of Brexit (RAPS)

Changes to global regulatory strategy in times of uncertainty

Developing new medical devices is more challenging than ever before given the need to relabel existing products and navigate new regulatory pathways and increased competition for Notified Bodies.

Regulatory Affairs Professionals Society speakers will share with you their stories and key learnings of how they are navigating the changes in this challenging regulatory environment. Compliance continues to be a moving target requiring mitigation workarounds and revisions to portfolio strategies.

We will explore how to build a global regulatory strategy that is fit for today and for whatever tomorrow may bring. Each presentation will last about 30-45 minutes, followed by a panel discussion and Q&A session.
