Course overview

With a growing trend in the crossover between pharmaceutical and medical device regulatory affairs, it is becoming increasingly important for pharmaceutical regulatory professionals to be aware of the issues surrounding medical device regulatory affairs.

Put together by practicing medical device regulatory affairs professionals, this newly researched and updated course is demanded by regulatory affairs managers who wish to get their people up to speed on current European medical device regulatory practices. 

You will return to your office a more confident and proactive medical device regulatory affairs professional who will be able to understand and comply with the medical device regulations, classify medical devices, assess borderlines issues and establish and maintain an internal audit programme and a supplier audit programme. 

The course will also enable you to prepare and manage a third party audit, recognise diverse country requirements, advise on how to conduct a clinical investigation and implement a copy approval process.

This week was massively useful. It helped to fill the gaps in my beginner knowledge in Regulatory Affairs. The course was very organised, with a great range of speakers and access to course notes.”  – 2018 delegate
