    Join experts for an engaging discussion on MDR transition periods, how to get competitive and sustainable medical devices to market, and more!

    After more than ten years of great success, the 12th Symposium will take place in close collaboration between NSF PROSYSTEM and Life Science Nord on September 14-15, 2023 at the Steigenberger Hotel in the heart of Hamburg.

    Join experts for an engaging discussion on MDR transition periods, how to get competitive and sustainable medical devices to the EU market & more.

    On March 20, 2023, the EU published the Regulation (EU) 2023/607 of the European Parliament and
    of the Council amending MDR Regulation 2017/745 as well as IVDR Regulation 2017/746 with new transitional provisions for certain medical devices and IVDs. The extensions are four and a half years for high-risk devices and five and a half years for medium and lower risk devices.

    The lack of conformity assessment capacities by Notified Bodies was one of the main drivers for this adjustment. In addition, many manufacturers are not fully prepared to meet the strengthened requirements of the MDR within the remaining timeframe of the old transition periods. This has had the potential to threaten the availability of medical devices on the EU market.

    Join us, 6 months after regulation 2023/607 came into force – to evaluate the experiences of how to master the regulatory challenges by experts from the EU Commission, BIOTRONIK, BVMed, BfArM, Notified Bodies, Manufacturers, Hospitals and other Stakeholders including the voice of the US FDA to provide practical guidance for sustainable implementations.
