EC’s Erik Hansson among panelists for Euro Convergence opening plenary

Erik Hansson, the European Commission’s deputy head of devices, will be among the expert panelists kicking off RAPS’ 2020 Euro Convergence, being held live online, 26–30 October. The 26 October plenary, Global Perspectives on the 2020 Regulatory Landscape, will feature 16 regulatory experts from organizations including government agencies, notified bodies and manufacturers.

Hansson leads the EC’s operational team dealing with the implementation of the EU Medical Devices Regulation (MDR) and In Vitro Diagnostics Regulation (IVDR), and the coordination between EU member states and other stakeholders. He moved from the EC’s Directorate General for Internal Market, Industry, Entrepreneurship and SMEs (DG Grow) to the Directorate General for Health and Food Safety (DG Sante) earlier this year, but has been working on MDR and IVDR at the EC since 2012.

Hansson also heads the EU delegation to the international regulatory cooperation in the International Medical Device Regulators Forum (IMDRF) and is coordinating the cooperation with national Competent Authorities in the Competent Authorities for Medical Devices Group (CAMD) framework.
