Regulatory Considerations:

With the release of ISO 10993-1:2018, there is a continued focus in biological safety planning and implementation processes, as well as the characterization of materials. Medical device manufacturers must go beyond the simple process of identifying a set list of biocompatibility tests when evaluating a device's biological safety. This session will take a look at the major changes introduced within ISO 10993-1:2018, and also discuss how manufacturers can prepare for implementation of these new requirements.
