An International Medical Device Regulators Forum was held April 29 to May 3 at the USC School of Pharmacy.
The School hosted regulatory reviewers from Southeast Asia, South America and the U.S. under the auspices of the Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC), an inter-governmental forum established in 1989 to promote free trade among its 21 Pacific Rim member nations.
Training was aimed at harmonized guidance for medical devices, an important goal with the potential to shorten paths to market, reduce industry and regulator workloads, and lower costs for medical devices.
Participants gained deep and current information on all aspects of regulatory management to improve patient access to new and important medical technologies.
The forum was organized as part of USC’s Regulatory Science Boot Camp, a popular series of training sessions that covers regulatory science aspects of drug and device development. Each session typically attracts more than 100 scholars and professionals from the Southern California research community, other parts of California and beyond.
