We can help you navigate the world’s regulatory minefields, develop innovative but compliant solutions, simplify your compliance and ensure that you deliver safe and effective medical devices.

Supporting innovation and international market access

Our permanent team of specialists’ regulatory and client skills are industry specific and are reinforced by a great deal of commercial experience. We address the regulatory challenges of our expanding customer base and we retain clients for many years. We are able to provide expertise for a growing range of new, innovative medical devices across the globe.  As a result, IMed goes from strength to strength, cementing client relationships with large international corporates, while also developing easy to understand processes and quality documentation for smaller businesses; taking multiple devices to market every year, all around the globe.

At IMed Consultancy we solve the regulatory challenges of our expanding customer base, by consistently putting their needs, their timelines and their budget first.  We know what it takes to run a business, whilst thinking on our fee to help you meet regulations and get your device to market and for continuing compliance.
