Raffle Draw (Present to Win)

Speakers: Daryl Wisdahl and Ken Pilgrim of EMERGO by UL

Topic: Post-market Surveillance

Topic Description: Post-market surveillance (PMS) is complex and often misunderstood by device manufacturers. Europe's new Medical Devices Regulation (MDR) and In-Vitro Diagnostic Regulation (IVDR), along with Health Canada’s recent amendments to their Medical Devices Regulations (CMDR), have added to the complexity of complying with PMS requirements. Many companies will need to update their PMS procedures and implement a more robust process for conducting PMS. This webinar will discuss the new PMS requirements and how to perform it.
