Event Details

The Medical Devices Regulations are a fundamental change to the regulation of higher risk medical devices in Europe, imposing far more prescriptive and onerous obligations on industry, regulators and notified bodies than previously.

A panel of regulatory experts chaired by John Wilkinson will discuss the implications, direct and indirect, of the regulations on the EU and British medical devices industries, regulators and notified bodies. Then a panel of EU and UK lawyers will consider the implications for products and related litigation. The mix of the regulatory and litigation views will give valuable insights to this important topic.
