Masterclass: Artificial Intelligence-enabled Medical Devices

Many companies take part in the global ‘race to AI’ by continuously broadening the role of AI in their product portfolio. However, the rules of the game appear to be changing. The increased visibility of the technology’s risks has led to calls for regulators to look beyond the benefits, and also secure appropriate legislation to ensure AI that is ‘trustworthy’– legal, ethical, and robust. During this session, we will discuss the main players, trends, and challenges in the ‘race’ to AI regulation and how companies can move forward with an advantage.

Sterilization of Medical Devices

Sterile devices are free of viable microorganisms and sterilization is one of the key processes in the production of sterile medical devices. Regulations for medical devices include particular requirements for devices supplied or intended to be used in a sterile state. These regulatory requirements relate to general safety and performance aspects for the products, and the requirements for independent, third-party conformity assessment of the processes for achieving sterility. Evidence of successful sterilization is important and expected when demonstrating conformity with the regulations. This course provides a comprehensive overview of these regulatory requirements and how to comply, together with the science and standards that support them.
