New MedTech EU MDR/ IVDR Regulations – Consequences and Solutions

The new Medtech EU MDR/IVD regulations published at the end of May pose a major strategic and operative challenge to the entire industry, and they will have a major impact on the business performance of many companies and SMEs. All companies are strongly challenged. The first stakeholders have prepared GAP analyses to realize the tight implementation requirements by 2020 (MDR) and 2023 (IVDR). There are more questions than answers at this time, especially as the interpretations of the legislation have not yet been established. This is further complicated by the fact that there is a looming shortage in Switzerland for the resources requirements (an estimated 1,400 skilled workers) and in the operative budget of Swiss companies (from up to 400 million Swiss francs per year).

The event, which is jointly organized by and Health TechCluster Switzerland, brings together leading experts from the industry and the services sector to discuss the current situation and possible solutions. Using facts, practical examples and stimulating concepts, the presentations and panel discussions will serve as a platform for all those involved to exchange ideas on practical solutions and plans for action.
The event addresses decision-makers in the medical technology sector.
