This workshop is designed to provide medical device companies with an overview of the new European Medical Devices directive.The new rules (for new and already on the market devices) will improve market surveillance and traceability, as well as make sure that all medical and in vitro diagnostic devices are designed to reflect the latest scientific research and state-of-the art technology. The rules will also provide more transparency and legal certainty for producers, manufacturers and importers.
