Overview of the regulatory framework for 3D printed dental implants – Presented by Claudia Luetzeler, Luetzeler Kluemper Partnerschaft von Rechtsanwaelten at the 3D Dental Printing Conference, which takes place on Jan 31, 2017 at MECC Maastricht in The Netherlands.
3D printing is not specifically regulated in the EU. However, the use of 3D printing for the manufacture of dental implants has to comply with legal requirements resulting from, among others, medical device law and data protection law. The presentation will provide an overview of the relevant provisions that are currently applicable and will also look into the future requirements of medical device law that will apply under the new Medical Devices Regulation.
