Course overview

Combination Products
for Medical Devices

In the EU, the demarcation between medical devices and medicinal products and the appropriate regulatory route to approval is becoming more and more complex thanks to the emerging new technologies that challenge the borderline space.

This 6-hour course outlines the European requirements for combination products, giving you a clear understanding of
 the borderline area and helping you define the regulatory route for your product. You'll also gain insight into the Medical Device CE certification conformity assessment process, as well as Notified Body expectations for Devices containing ancillary medicinal substance and Devices containing ancillary human blood derivative. Get to know the Competent Authority Medicinal Consultation process, the options available, timelines and documentation expectations,  Post-CE certification expectations and change management.

This course is delivered virtually using Zoom and is fully interactive, offering you the chance to take part in group activities, participate in polls and download course materials.
