-When: Wednesday, April 18, 16:00-16:30 PM
-Where: MedTec Europe 2018, Stuttgart, Germany
-Who: Jay Crowley, VP of UDI Services and Solutions at USDM Life Sciences

“I’m looking forward to my presentations at MedTec Europe,” said Jay Crowley, VP of UDI Services and Solutions at USDM. “My discussions will explore the implications of recently enacted medical device regulations and the evolving similarities, differences, and implementation issues with global UDI requirements.”

Recent legislation—European Medical Device and In Vitro Device Regulations—will present numerous remediation and implementation challenges as companies continue to distribute devices in the EU. Crowley will delve into strategies to best address and comply with these complex regulations. He will also highlight new requirements for “legacy” devices with a valid MDD/AIMD certificate and Class I devices with an expired certificate.

Crowley will also address many aspects of the EU introduction of a UDI system for all medical devices. While similar to the US UDI System, the EU UDI System exhibits some significant differences that will pose substantial implementation issues. Beyond the US and EU, Crowley will discuss the potential publication of UDI, or UDI-like, requirements from several other countries in the next 2-5 years.

At USDM, Jay Crowley assists medical device manufacturers to achieve regulatory compliance, while focusing on business process and technology solutions to help provide strategic advantage with UDI implementation for the MDR and IVDR. His experience in the field affords him specialized capability to thoroughly unpack the ramifications of new UDI legislation.

MedTec Europe 2018 is April 17-19 in Messe Stuttgart, Germany.

Jay will also present on the EU MDR during a live online workshop hosted by USDM on Thursday, April 26, 2018 at 11am PT / 2pm ET / 6pm GMT. Register here.
