This week saw the Joint IMDRF / Stakeholder (DITTA-GMTA) Workshop on the 25-26 September in Berlin. The focus was on specialised regulatory pathways including pathways for innovative medical devices.
Key highlights from the session included the opportunities for harmonisation based on the principles laid down by the IMDRF. The session also considered opportunities for innovative device pathways, including the MHRA IDAP programme.
The meeting covered a panel discussion on ways to foster innovation. The event was well presented with useful discussions and questions throughout.
BIVDA will continue to attend workshops and events to increase our knowledge of IVD space. We will update our membership through our weekly newsletter and social media.
