FDA Export Certificates for Medical Devices


Companies need to stay internationally competitive and this webinar on export certificates provides a key link for entry to markets around the globe. This webinar will explore the export approval and certification process in the U.S. It will include guidance on preparing applications and obtaining FDA's certification that specific products identified for export meet U.S. regulatory requirements. All of this will be valuable in obtaining broader access to global markets.

Why should you Attend: In today's global environment, sustaining competitive advantage within the medical device industry involves a global product strategy that recognizes the issues involved in managing regulations across different countries. To this end, certain countries require an Export Certificate that the manufacturer and its devices are indeed in compliance with FDA regulations. In submitting export certificates, any mistake, no matter how minor, can delay product approvals, launches, or cause widespread public relations disasters. Therefore, understanding and correct execution of the export certificate processes has become a competitive advantage for global manufacturers of medical devices.
