LOS ANGELES, March 28, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
European Medical Device Technology (EMDT) and medtechinsider, two of UBM Canon's leading brands focused on medical device technologies including materials, design, manufacturing processes and regulation, today announced an upcoming webinar that will cover the recently published MEDDEV 2.1/6 document outlining regulatory issues for stand-alone medical software.

"Mr. Vollebregt will provide insight into how MEDDEV 2.1/6 helps manufacturers achieve compliance and where it may fall short."
Mr. Vollebregt will define what is-and what is not-stand-alone software from a medical perspective, and how that affects the regulatory pathway as well as provide perspectives on how the medical device directives may affect the regulation of clinical decision support software.
