Products Liability & Regulatory Compliance: Effective Practices for Avoiding Litigation and Ensuring Safe Medical Devices

April 12, 2018 - April 13, 2018

Virginia Tech Executive Briefing Center, 900 N. Glebe Road, Arlington, Virginia

Medmarc, Hyman Phelps & McNamara, and Virginia Tech have collaborated to assemble a group of esteemed speakers to deliver this two-day program that will explore the relationship between regulatory compliance and products liability.

Medical devices are regulated heavily by FDA─both before and after they are marketed. Manufacturers are also required to meet international standards.  Failure to meet the challenges presented by these requirements exposes a company to a higher risk of products liability. 

This conference will enhance your ability to meet these regulatory challenges and mitigate products liability risk.

  • Reporting requirements and how they affect products liability
  • How to reduce products liability risk with sales force, advertising, and promotion compliance techniques
  • Key FDA regulatory requirements that must be followed and their relationship to products liability risk

  • How your business partners can increase your products liability risk
  • How products liability results from the failure to implement international product design standards
  • How improper recalls can create products liability
