“Denmark shares the same challenges as many other countries – in trying to keep up with the implementation challenge and the developments with new and innovative products that keep on challenging our regulations. It is necessary that the countries in Europe work together – and share our best practices and our resources.
“I believe we are here to improve patient safety as we do that every day through our work with market surveillance. With the challenges ahead of us – with both new technology and new regulations – I believe that if we work together we are able to make the change and jump to the next level – of regulation – and control. That is my aim in the CAMD Executive Group.”

He joined the French medical device competent authority in 2005 as chief of market surveillance and conformity assessment unit for medical device which scope was enlarged to IVD in 2010.

” MDR and IVDR are major milestones for the European regulation of MD and IVD products. It’s a unique opportunity to bring to patients safer, more innovative and more performant medical devices. Such a regulation needs a strong network among European competent authorities. CAMD Executive group has a major role to play in bringing this network alive, able to support the European Commission and MDCG to guarantee a success for the new regulation implementation.”
“ANSM continues its efforts to improve European collaboration in order to strengthen competent authorities network to raise up the confidence and efficacy on the medical device and IVD European regulatory framework.”
