Why this Webinar?

If you are a U.S. exporter/manufacturer of medical or in vitro diagnostic devices and your target market is the European Union, you may want to sign up for this webinar.

In 2008, the EU regulators launched a comprehensive review process of existing medical device legislations. The proposed texts – covering medical devices and in vitro diagnostics – are subject to a lot of discussion among different institutional groups and stakeholders. If adopted as currently proposed in 2014, the changes will significantly impact manufacturers. For example, the approval procedure for high risk devices has been radically changed and in vitro diagnostics will be classified differently in the future.

Europe’s changing regulatory landscape is creating challenges and opportunities for companies active in the medical sector. Learn more about these changes by joining the U.S. Commercial Service and our guest speaker for a highly informational 90 minute webinar.

Our guest speaker is:

Mr. Maurizio Suppo, Ph.D, has been a consultant for Qarad since 2012. Maurizio Suppo obtained his Ph.D. in molecular biology from the University of Turin (Italy) in 1985 and has 27 years of experience in the field of regulatory affairs and quality systems for medical devices and IVDs. He has been the Director of the European Diagnostic Manufacturers Association (EDMA) and had a significant role in the development of the European IVD Directive 98/79/EC. His knowledge and experience in RA&QS go beyond the European borders due to his responsibility for world-wide regulatory affairs in a major IVD multinational company.
