IMDRF welcomes input and participation by medical device sector stakeholders. Participation takes places via a number of channels including:
- Participation in open member working groups
- Attendance and participation in the regular IMDRF open stakeholder forums
- Attendance as invited participants at IMDRF Management Committee meetings
The aim of IMDRF is to accelerate international medical device regulatory harmonization and convergence. For this to be achieved, close collaboration between regulators and stakeholders is essential, and in particular between regulators and the regulated industry.
The next Open Stakeholder Forum will take place in France in March 2013. All stakeholders who would like to attend this Forum should register their attendance by contacting the IMDRF secretariat at EC-IMDRF2013-SECRETARIAT@ec.europa.eu. Further information is available on the Meetings page.
