The Russian medical device industry is one of the largest markets in the world. Many companies are enticed by the large potential for growth, a healthcare system that favours medical devices from foreign manufacturers and an ageing population.
The processes that the Russian medical device agency Roszdravnadzor (RZN) has in place are often poorly understood by companies outside of the region and it is not uncommon that product registrations are rejected. Furthermore, even with products on the market, medtech companies have to comply with several federal laws and regulations from various government bodies.
This course will provide delegates with the knowledge to remain compliant with Russia's medical device regulations throughout the process of registering medical devices and maintaining them through the product lifecycle.
