  Shaping the new regulations for medical devices
As New Zealand looks to introduce its own legislation for therapeutic products, it also needs to understand and use the significant new European Union regulations. There will be an enormous impact on all phases of the CE Mark process, including pre-market approval, data requirements and post-market surveillance. How can we draw on global best practice and not duplicate and disrupt processes here?
