IMDRF was conceived in February 2011 as a forum to discuss future directions in medical device regulatory harmonization. It is a voluntary group of medical device regulators from around the world who have come together to build on the strong foundational work of the Global Harmonization Task Force on Medical Devices (GHTF), and to accelerate international medical device regulatory harmonization and convergence.
The Medical Device Epidemiology Network Initiative (MDEpiNet) is part of the Epidemiology Research Program (ERP) at the FDA’s Center for Devices and Radiological Health (CDRH). The initiative is a collaborative program through which CDRH and external partners share information and resources to enhance our understanding of the safety and effectiveness of medical devices after they are marketed.
The ICOR initiative was launched in 2011, and aims to summarise the international data sources and methods for post-market evaluations and surveillance of orthopedic devices. The conference attendants included 73 stakeholders from 29 orthopaedic joint registries (total joint arthroplasty) representing 14 nations.
