Virtual summit to help understanding of new EU regulations

Medical device quality management software (MDQMS) platform Greenlight Guru will be hosting a True Quality Summit Series: EU MDR & IVDR, a free, five-day online event to help quality, regulatory and product development professionals understand the new EU medical device regulations.

The True Quality Summit Series will take place March 22 through March 26, 2021. The European Union (EU) Medical Device Regulation (MDR) and In-Vitro Diagnostic Regulation (IVDR) were created to promote patient safety, transparency, traceability and clinical evidence throughout the product life cycle in order to ensure product safety and efficacy. The MDR establishes specific and preventive requirements to verify that products introduced to the EU market will not negatively impact the environment or patient health.

Jon Speer, founder of Greenlight Guru, said: “In the current medical device landscape, companies cannot afford to fail regulatory compliance standards. Failure to comply with the updated EU MDR standards costs time and money, which can threaten the quality and speed to market of past, present and future medical devices. The upcoming summit will pull together some of the brightest minds in the industry to share insight and tips to ensure compliance as we take on another year of change.”

Eric Henry, virtual summit presenter and senior quality & regulatory compliance advisor at King & Spalding, said: “As a community of medical device professionals, we must take advantage of opportunities that promote compliance as a crucial element of innovation in the industry. Greenlight Guru has demonstrated a history of ensuring this topic remains refreshed and at top-of-mind among medical device companies through their industry resources, like hosting these free virtual events to offer valuable expertise from the industry’s top experts across their global network. Speaker insights from the True Quality Summit Series could be an important factor in a company’s journey towards compliance with EU MDR and IVDR.”

The EU MDR & IVDR Virtual Summit, as part of the True Quality Summit Series, aims to share perspectives, industry experiences, key actions and insights related to EU MDR & IVDR from top industry leaders.
