Topical Issues on Medical Devices Seminar, 14 November 2018, Helsinki


The European Union regulation on medical devices 2017/745 (MDR) requires implementation of unique identifiers on medical devices by early 2020’s. Similar Unique Device Identification system has already been implemented in the USA. The pharmaceutical industry has already experienced implementation of a comparable system, called serialization, with the EU deadline in February 2019.

Industry and regulatory experts will gather to Helsinki, Finland, to discuss topical issues in medical devices in a seminar arranged by the Pharmaceutical Information Centre on 14 November 2018.

Servicepoint’s Chief Technology Officer Iiro Jantunen, D.Sc. (Tech.), will be giving a presentation at the conference of the topic “Unique Device Identification vs. safety marking of medicinal packages”.
