The RegUP rundown

What is a RegUP?

The medical device industry is, by its very nature, a high-stress one. New medical technologies are being created all the time, and as a result, regulations are constantly changing. Being a regulatory professional in the medtech industry requires extraordinary attention to detail and nerves of steel. Rimsys was founded by regulatory pros for regulatory pros, and we understand the need to unwind in a professional environment with other leaders in the industry. That’s why we came up with the idea of the RegUP. 

So, what’s a RegUP? It’s short for “Regulatory Meetup,” and it’s a small gathering of regulatory professionals, not a large conference. We’ll enjoy delicious food and beverages as we get to know each other and discuss regulatory trends and best practices.

When and where?

Boston - Sept 29th

Our first RegUP event will be held on the East Coast in Boston, MA, on September 29, 2022, at Democracy Brewing. Democracy Brewing, nestled in historic Downtown Crossing (one of the oldest neighborhoods in the United States), is the first cooperative brewery in Boston. Their menu features plenty of delicious craft beers and an eclectic selection of cuisines ranging from Mediterranean to classic American bar food. 

San Jose - Oct 13th

Our second event will be held on the West Coast in the San Jose area on Oct 13, 2022, at Big Dog Vineyards. Big Dog Vineyards is a locally owned and operated winery in the picturesque Milpitas Hills, CA. Their Winery & Tasting Room opened in 2009, right beside the estate vineyard, which was planted in 1997. 

What should you expect at a RegUP event?

As  mentioned, we understand that regulatory professionals in the medical device industry are under constant pressure to ensure they keep up with ever-changing trends and best practices. And if you are like us, the opportunity to hone your trade and sharpen your skills and knowledge in a more casual setting will be welcome. 

Here’s the agenda for RegUP Boston to give you an idea of what to expect at our events:

  • 12:00 - 12:30 pm Welcome: Increasing confidence in regulatory planning. Many regulatory challenges are driven by a lack of visibility into regulatory timelines, resources, and needs. A comprehensive regulatory data strategy can help RA teams build more resilient plans, and shift their organizational posture from reactive to proactive.
  • 12:30 - 1:15 pm Catered lunch
  • 1:15 - 1:45 pm TBD Regulatory best practices case study
  • 1:45 - 2:15 MDR/IVDR information essentials: MDR/IVDR compliance remains top of mind for RA teams. New information requirements including GSPRs, UDI/EUDAMED, and Post-market surveillance and reporting require a new approach to regulatory information management.
  • 2:15 - 4:00 pm Brewery tour, tasting, and networking

Rimsys Speakers

  • James Gianoutsos - Founder & CEO
  • Bruce McKean - Director of Regulatory (Boston)
  • Adam Price - Director of Product, Post Market (San Jose)

We hope to see you there!

Our RegUP events in Boston and San Jose will be the first of many opportunities for us to network, further regulatory knowledge and processes, and even enjoy each other’s company over tasty beverages. Best of all, these events are free for Rimsys customers and qualified guests. 

Of course, you can also expect these events to get bigger and better with time. Nonetheless, you don’t want to miss out on the first of these opportunities to get to know us and our industry better. We hope to see you there! If you are unable to attend though, keep an eye on our LinkedIn page for future RegUP events in a city near you.
