This symposium is designed to provide an introduction to regulatory fundamentals in the context of biomedical devices. The symposium will feature 5 speakers from the Therapeutic Goods Administration in Canberra that will focus on the following topics:

  • An introduction to medical device regulation
  • Process of conformity assessments for higher risk devices
  • Meeting clinical evidence requirements through translational research
  • Keeping Australia safe: continuing responsibilities
  • Applications of testing and standards to medical devices

In addition, participants will have the opportunity to join a tour of the new CSIRO Biomedical Manufacturing Translational Facility (BMTF) and other relevant CSIRO infrastructure.

This symposium provides a unique opportunity for everybody that is interested in translational aspects of biomedical devices to get an overview over the most important aspects of regulatory issues from TGA experts, all compressed into one day.
