Medical devices

We support the development and registration of your medical devices, such as class I to class III devices, including software, in vitro diagnostic and drug-device combination products. We can also help you setting up an ISO compliant quality management system. We do this both efficiently and with respect to time and cost.
The four pillars of our approach are to keep the helicopter view, to look for potential opportunities, communicate risks, and to find the optimal solution for issues at hand. This enables our clients to maintain good relationships with notified bodies and agencies worldwide.

When you tell us about your goals, we will challenge you and discuss with you whether your product is considered to be a medical device in order to provide you the best and efficient support to achieve your goals.
