About the Conference:

With the goal of ensuring safe use of medical technology, regulatory authorities on an international level continuously release new provisions impacting label content, prompting teams to develop increasingly flexible strategies in order to reach compliance in a timely manner. Challenges therefore reside in remaining abreast of rapidly evolving rules, correct interpretation and integration of provisions in corporate strategies, all while maintaining efficiency in ongoing labeling operations. In particular, the recent shift in regulations in Europe generate much concern from labeling professionals, unsure how to move forward with a lack of clarity in specific areas of the MDR and IVDR, such as the use of symbols.

  • Deep Dive into EU MDR & IVDR Impact on Labels
  • IFU Content Optimization: Human Factors & Technical Writing
