Moravia’s Life Sciences Division is heading to the Lone Star State for the Regulatory Affairs Professionals Society (RAPS) Regulatory Convergence. The event, which takes place Sept. 27-Oct. 1 in Austin, Texas, will feature some of the most prominent leaders in the life sciences industry, including an extensive display by Moravia in Booth #434.
RAPS is the largest global organization of and for those involved with the regulation of healthcare and related products, including medical devices, pharmaceuticals, biologics and nutritional products. It helped to establish the regulatory profession and continues to actively support the industry through education and training, professional standards, publications, research, knowledge sharing, networking, career development opportunities and other valuable resources.
Earlier this year, Moravia launched the Life Sciences Innovation Initiative (LSI), a customized program to promote globalization best practices among medical device manufacturers, pharma companies and other healthcare businesses. The LSI program includes dedicated teams of globalization professionals who are specially trained to support life sciences clients, in addition to customized materials and procedures to address healthcare-specific issues.
“Regulatory standards are changing around the globe, and translation requirements play an increasingly prominent role,” said Libor Safar, Marketing Manager of Moravia. “Whether it’s the new medical device regulations in the European Union or the developing standards governing medical device apps or software, you can visit our booth and learn how to navigate the new and emerging language requirements.”
In 2012, Moravia earned CSN EN ISO 13485 certification for its Life Sciences Practice. ISO 13485 defines international standards for quality management and quality assurance within the design, development, production, installation and servicing of medical and in-vitro diagnostic devices. It also establishes standards for regulatory compliance, which is critical for medical device manufacturers.
RAPS is headquartered in suburban Washington, DC, with offices in Europe and Asia, and chapters and affiliates worldwide.
