Cellular technology adds exciting new possibilities for healthcare but can also bring regulatory burden. When you incorporate a wireless module into your medical device, you must comply with wireless technology Type Approval requirements that apply in over 100 countries. And, there is no one-size-fits-all approach, as regulatory and testing requirements can vary by market based on your device’s technology.
Despite these obstacles, the benefits of cellular technology outweigh the challenges of certifying a wireless product, even in the most challenging markets. In this one-hour webinar, wireless compliance experts at UL discuss regulatory requirements for cellular and wireless devices in major markets. You will learn:
- How technology affects your regulatory requirements
- Key differences between a host and a module, and options you have based on the type of module selected
- Overview of testing requirements for wireless devices
- Introduction to US (FCC) and European Union (Radio Equipment Directive) standards
- Compliance routes for wireless Type Approvals when selling globally
