Notified Body BSi Group to lead workshop during Pre-filled Syringes San Francisco

Partner Content

SMi Group are delighted to announce that BSi Group will lead a post-conference workshop on September 16th at the inaugural conference in San Francisco.

In 2020, BSI became the first to issue a Notified Body Opinion to a manufacturer under Article 117 of the Medical Devices Regulation. Introduced by the European Commission under the new MDR, Article 117 requires manufacturers placing drug-device combination products onto the market as an integral device and marketing them as a “medicinal product” to seek Notified Body Opinion. The notified body then confirms the device is compliant with the relevant General Safety and Performance Requirements and provides an opinion to the Medicines Competent Authority to confirm compliance.

BSI has formed a dedicated Medicinal and Biologics Team to provide guidance on Article 117 and focus our full attention on this challenging area of new EU regulation. This workshop will highlight key considerations, potential challenges and provide guidance in navigating Article 117 for the medical devices and combination product industry
