Who is prepared for the drastic changes in MedTech regulation?

Following the success of Qserve’s previous sessions, we extend an invitation to join us at the 4th international Qserve Conference, where a very diverse program will be presented with speakers from the industry, Notified Bodies and Competent Authorities. 

The theme of the conference will be to address not only the EU regulations but to also focus on the broader picture, looking at changes in the US and China and discuss the worldwide registrations that are based on EU or US approval.

The International Qserve Conference will follow a practical approach and demonstrate best practices in the general sessions while offering interactive workshops on various hot topics.


September 2019 will mark 8 months until the deadline to meet MDR requirements. Learn the steps manufacturers have to go through in the coming months.

What can manufacturers do to minimize the risks of product withdrawal? What is the best practice for clinical data for legacy products? Is there an overall “Plan B” by competent authorities?

80% of IVD manufacturers will be affected by this drastic change.

What are the significant impacts? How should a simple gap analysis be prepared? What details are Notified Bodies expecting to see in the technical file? What and how much clinical performance data is requirered?

Qserve has recognized a shift in regulatory strategies. For new devices, manufacturers are more frequently using the FDA pathways as the first regulatory milestone.

What are the different routes for market access when the US is the initial regulatory pathway? What are the requirements for an FDA priority review?

In 2020, China will be enforcing new regulations.

As overseas inspections are becoming increasingly important, how should these regulations be approached? Qserve will demonstrate best practices used by our consultants who have been involved in recent manufacturers’ inspections. Will the new regulations further specify the clinical data required, and will the use of overseas data be widely accepted?
