Nomenclature of medical devices - European Alliance for Medical and Biological Engineering & Science - EAMBES - February 11th at 3 PM UK Time

In May 2019, the World Health Assembly of the World Health Organisation (WHO) decided to start working on a free international nomenclature of medical devices, including IVDs, for facilitating and harmonising the work of regulators, procurers, supply and user around the globe. According to the WHO, this nomenclature must be a "Public Good", not subject to copyright, freely accessible to everyone, and designed to consider the real need of healthcare professionals (e.g., nurses, clinical engineers), facilitating their daily work. For this reason, the WHO considered aligning the nomenclature with the International Classification of Diseases 11th Revision (ICD11).

The European Union has decide to change its official nomenclature adopting the Italian nomenclature.

Consequently, the Nomenclature Working group of EAMBES (European Alliance for Medical and Biological Engineering & Science) organised a webinar led by international experts aiming at clarifying the Italian Nomenclature system of Medical Devices.

The webinar will be held on February 11th at 3 PM UK Time by Dr. Ernesto Iadanza, Adjunct Professor, Department of Information Engineering - Università degli Studi di Firenze, and Prof. Fabiano Bini, Associate Professor, Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, Universita’ La Sapienza di Roma
