STUTTGART, Germany, June 2, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Mark Hassenplug, President and CEO of global life sciences compliance consulting firm, Maetrics, has been selected to give a keynote address on the medical device industry and the changing global regulatory landscape it faces. The presentation is titled, "Global Business and Regulatory Trends in the Medical Device Industry." It will cover the state of the medical device industry, the rapidly changing regulatory environment, and the need to create and implement a new global compliance culture within companies. Hassenplug's talk will be given at the MEDTEC Europe Conference on Wednesday, June 4, 9:30 a.m. to 10:15 a.m., in Stuttgart, Germany at the Messe Piazza, Hall 9, Theatre C.
Observed Hassenplug, "Until recently, many medical device companies gave regulatory compliance a lower priority in their product development strategies, even being reactive in approach. Today's more complex, multi-platform devices, global scale, and increased regulatory zeal has compelled management to seek a more proactive approach, but often in the face of a reactive culture. Metrics' experienced guidance helps companies become more agile in bridging that gap and provides global acumen such that companies will create a successful evolution of their compliance strategies and programs."
Also at MEDTEC Europe, Maetrics' Managing Director for the United Kingdom, Peter Rose, will be speaking on "Harmonized UDI Regulatory Framework – Clarification on the European Commission's UDI Roadmap" on June 3 at 11:45 a.m.
Mr. Hassenplug and Mr. Rose will be available, by appointment, for confidential conferences during MEDTEC Europe. Attendees are invited to visit the company's stand #3E64, in the Messe Piazza.
