Soon the final version of the Medical Device Regulation (MDR) and the In Vitro Diagnostic Device Regulation (IVDR) will be published. Both will have a significant and dramatic impact on medical device manufacturers and everyone associated with the industry.

On 23 March 2017, Swiss Medtech will be hosting a conference in Berne, Switzerland, where representatives from the national competent authority (Swissmedic), Notified Bodies and the industry will present their view on the expected changes and their respective impact. A specific focus will be the special case of Switzerland as a non-EU member state and how these new regulations will be implemented in Swiss national law.

It is of the utmost importance that all employees at firms who may be affected by this are aware of the key changes and challenges. Therefore, this conference is of particular importance to senior executives, decision makers, quality management and regulatory affairs teams. Don’t miss this; it has an impact on all of us!

Beat Steffen, founder and CEO of confinis was invited as a speaker in one of the break-out sessions in the afternoon where he will be giving his views on the practical implementation of the MDR – he looks forward to seeing you!
