Nerac Adds Skilled Professionals to its Medical Device Practice Group
Zamir Bar-David and Michelangelo Malleo bring over 50 years combined experience in the healthcare and medical device industry
Medical and diagnostic device products currently on the market now or releasing in the future face significant regulatory changes that will impact business significantly. The substantial changes which include the recently released Clinical Evaluation Report MEDDEV Rev 4, the highly anticipated Medical Device Regulations (MDR) and In-Vitro Diagnostic Medical Device Regulations (IVDR), along with the Quality Management System ISO 13485:2016 and the Medical Device Single Audit Program (MDSAP), are among a number of initiatives undertaken by the US, EU and other global regulatory bodies. Companies that market products requiring global compliance need to be aware and prepare for the significant regulatory, clinical, and quality changes upon them now, and on the horizon.
Zamir Bar-David brings more than 25 years of experience in regulatory, compliance and quality management in medical devices, pharmaceuticals, IVDs, labs and CROs. Most recently, he was the Lead Auditor and Trainer for Intertek Business Assurance where he was responsible for assessing and auditing client's quality and regulatory systems to the latest requirements, as well as training clients on international standards, regulations and auditing programs. Previously he worked for TUV Rhineland as a lead auditor, Stryker Orthopaedics Corp. as a Regulatory Affairs Consultant, Hydrocision, Inc. as a QA/RA Manager and Waters Corp. as a Quality Systems Lead Auditor.
Michelangelo Malleo has more than 25 years experience in medical devices and biotech pharmacological product sales. He was instrumental in bringing several companies to the commercialization phase, such as Abbvie, Scios Inc. and COR Therapeutics.
