Manage Quality Early & Across the Total Product Lifecycle to Reduce Risk, Streamline Compliance while Accelerating Innovation

Medical device manufacturers are facing very tough challenges today including demand for innovation, complying with strict evolving environmental and regulatory requirements, and shrinking price premiums, not to mention intense competition which demands faster times-to-market. With the recently published proposed rule for the FDA’s Unique Device Identification (UDI), medical device manufacturers must now meet new challenges.
