Description



A key medical device market in your global strategy is Asia-Pacific as Japan, China and India are currently the hot countries to manufacture and market your devices. However accessing this lucrative region can be challenging and frustrating. There is a lack of harmonisation in the regulations and indeed each country has its own regulatory framework which presents its own unique problems.

Informa Life Sciences’ 2nd Annual ‘Medical Device Regulations in Asia-Pacific’ will answer all your pressing questions and update you on the regulatory frameworks to access seven key countries in the region. Updates on the regulations and practical case study presentations full of hints and tips from key industry leaders on how they accessed Asia-Pacific, will give you in two days all the information that you require to fine tune your strategy when back in the office.

Key countries to be covered include Japan, India, China, Australia, Hong Kong, Singapore, and Korea.
