Course overview

As discussed in the joint Human Medicines/ Medical Device session at the TOPRA 2018 Symposium, there are big changes ahead in Europe for companies with products incorporating a delivery device - eg, pre-filled syringes, auto-injectors and inhalers. The US and other regions are also focusing more on how to regulate these increasingly technical products appropriately. As such, this course will cover: 

  • An introduction to combination products
  • The evolving regulatory landscape 
  • The impact of the new EU Medical Device Regulation
  • New guidance documents 
  • Considerations for development of "combined products",  including design controls and human factors 
  • The challenges, similarities and differences between the EU, US and emerging markets 
  • Industry case study
