How can start-ups in Medical Technology ensure future success? By acquiring regulatory know-how as early as possible! Why is regulation so important for medical technology products? Why should regulatory requirements be addressed as early as possible? What is important? Our seminar will answer these and other burning questions. Increasing regulatory requirements currently place great demands on validation for medical technology and medical devices. The Medical Device Regulation (MDR) and the necessary steps until market entry are becoming more and more urgent. Regulatory know-how is necessary and offers advantages as early as the development stage and significantly secures your later success.
