(PresseBox) - The programme of the online trade show and congress with various talks, a live hack and an elevator pitch. The virtual meeting-point for medtech developers and manufacturers will be online from 20 to 22 April.

?Medical technology has to meet ultra-rigorous quality standards as well as delivering cost-effectiveness and minimising time to market?, says Norbert Stuiber, Director Global Sales & Strategic Marketing at T Device Regulation (MDR) has been postponed to this May, some manufacturers are still unaware of the General Safety and Performance Requirements (GSPR) which apply to the Regulation and with which their products must conform, such as proof of biocompatibility following a risk-based approach in line with ISO 10993.

Wireless technology is gaining ground

Further new regulations have been established in response to the spread of wireless technologies, which are governed by the MDR, but also by national standards and radio communication laws including the EU RED (Radio Equipment Directive, 2014/53/EU) and the requirements of FCC/ISED in the USA and Canada, MIC in Japan and ANATEL in Brazil. In some cases, medical device manufacturers prefer to make use of devices that are already tested and certified instead of developing their own wireless modules. While this approach saves time and costs, it requires precise instructions from the module manufacturer. ?Developers must be familiar with the regulatory requirements of the markets in question; all technical and legal aspects ? such as permissible frequency bands for local operation ? must be clarified prior to installation?, warns Thomas Ring, Senior Account Manager Global Wireless Approvals. ?To ensure national approval applications are successful, companies must take action at an early stage and ensure they can furnish seamless end-to-end documentation.?
