Since 2017 we have analyzed the new EU Medical Devices Regulations, the enabling acts (still to come!) and MDUFA IV. Now one more year on, we examine what has improved, where action is still required and what to do now to keep products on the market and review new initiatives in Japan.

Learning Objectives

Describe how your own organization is managing the change to the new EU regulations; Assess what changes the MDUFA IV regulations have already made and how things might change further; Discuss the changes happening in Japan; Identify areas where your organization still needs to move forward to comply with the new regulations; Interpret the new regulations and guidance to benefit their own working environment.
