Journeying from country to country in the region, this intense 2-day course explores the key issues in Latin America from dossier preparation and classification to lifecycle management and labelling so you have the required skills to get your device approved.

As well as learning about the fundamentals of local regulations the course will also develop best practiced strategies to manage important relationships and import your devices, which can cause significant problems if overlooked.
