Course Description:

It is critical to understand the applicable regulations/requirements and apply them appropriately to each phase of product life cycle. Anyone can read and understand regulations or requirements from the source(s), but when it comes to interpretation and application, they are invisible. This course makes this part of the compliance process visible to participants.

This two days interactive course on medical device regulations will provide a good understating of requirements in US, Canada, Europe, Australia and major Asian countries and how they affect the total lifecycle, especially a company’s products.

  • Identify common elements of regulatory framework based on acquired knowledge
  • Develop and determine phases of TPLC of medical devices
  • Determine and plug all applicable regulations/requirements to each phase of TPLC
  • Apply risk management principles and techniques throughout the TPLC
  • Build company-wide Continuous Compliance Culture (CCC) with ease and confidence

Who will benefit:

This interactive course is designed for both technical and non-technical people who are involved in the design, development, manufacturing, marketing, and distribution of medical devices. The people who are involved and responsible for interactions with external partners, hospitals, clinics, healthcare professionals, customers and regulatory authorities will get maximum benefits.

Boston Public Library
The Boston Public Library was the first large municipally-funded public library in America. It has a central location right in the heart of Copley Square, facing the Trinity Church, easily accessible by taking the Green Line to Copley station (or also near to Orange Line Back Bay stop).

Fenway Park
Fenway Park is the oldest Major League baseball park in the United States. Its small, intimate atmosphere really allows you to feel like you are "in the game." The park is situated right in downtown Boston - so it is very accessible if you are visiting the area.

Museum of Science
The Boston Museum of Science is a long-standing tradition for families in Boston, but that doesn't mean adults won't enjoy themselves too! Their exhibits range from dinosaurs to space travel to wildlife to physics to human biology to an in-depth look at Boston's "Big Dig" project.

North End
This Italian neighborhood, Boston's oldest, is known for its wonderful restaurants and historic sights.

Old North Church
The signal from the steeple of Boston's oldest church triggered the War for Independence that led to the birth of America. On that fateful night in 1775, the two lanterns in the steeple told Paul Revere that the British were approaching by boat, not on foot.
