Introducing your Medical Devices to France

Event Details

Date: 19th April 2022
Time: 10:00 am

The medical device (MD) market has undergone profound changes over the past twenty years, under the combined effect of three factors of change: the considerable development of technologies, the strengthening of European and national requirements in terms of health safety, and growing economic constraints on reimbursement spending.

In this context, medical device manufacturers must be able to anticipate very early in the development of their product the requirements to meet to obtain not only CE marking but also manage a successful product pathway on the market.

Our panel of expert speakers will give an overview of the different routes to market to sell your solution in France and look through the DOs and DON’Ts when working with a French partner.
