About the Conference

Medical Packaging Conference is an annual educational conference unveiling current medical device packaging trends and regulatory changes. As the EU Medical Device Regulation (EU MDR) will come into effect in May 2020, the Medical Packaging Conference 2019 will discuss the latest EU MDR and ISO 11607 regulatory changes impacting big and small medical device companies. What are these changes and how they will impact companies?

Amongst many MDR and ISO 11607 related topics, we will present usability evaluation of medical device packaging in detail. Usability evaluation has long been the requirement for medical devices but now with the new MDR and revised ISO 11607, MDMs are expected to evaluate usability of the packaging for aseptic presentation. Industry experts will walk you through the regulatory changes coming from MDR and ISO 11607, present best practices to comply with them, and real-world case studies. Experienced operating room nurses will provide unfiltered feedback on various packaging designs in a live package opening session.

More on technical side, the labelling of medical device packaging with UDI compliant symbols and current packaging design best practices will be discussed in lectures and workshops. The conference consists of presentations, workshops and great opportunities to network. All this will help you to navigate the upcoming regulatory or technical hurdles.

Medical Packaging Conference invites everyone to attend the two-day conference on 9-10 October 2019 and the pre-conference on 8 October 2019!
