Waltham, MA, September 24, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- The Medical Development Group announces its Wednesday, October 3, 2012 Forum entitled “CE Mark - Global Market Access and US Perspective.” Medical device companies today look to Europe and the rest of the world to increase sales, grow market-share, and to ensure the benefits of their technologies and innovations are utilized on a global scale. Medical devices are required to be CE-marked to be sold within Europe. Medical Device Directive 93/42/EEC has defined the essential requirements to be met by medical device manufacturers. This forum will give a clear and concise introduction on the essential requirements, choosing a conformity assessment route suitable for the medical device and your business setting, details on addressing a technical file, as well as real-world examples of success from the field. According to MDG President Richard (Dick) O’Brien, "Importantly, several MDG members and fellow Massachusetts medical device entrepreneurs are considering launching products using CE marking approval. This is a very ambitious and timely program for our members and partners!"
