Elena Zarubina, CEO, Regmeddevice (CCRMD, Ltd)
The medical device registration process plays a pivotal role in ensuring the safety and efficacy of healthcare products in the market. However, this seemingly straightforward procedure comes with a myriad of challenges that can pose significant hurdles for manufacturers seeking approval for their medical devices.One persistent challenge that keeps cropping up is the issue of incorrect paperwork and reportssubmitted by applicants. The persistent errors in these essential materials, coupled with manufacturers’ frequent inquiries, contribute to a cumbersome and prolonged review process. The inaccuracies in the documentation not only complicate the evaluation of the dossier but also extend the overall timeframe for approval, potentially delaying the availability of crucial medical innovations for patients.Thus, recognizing the critical need for a streamlined and error-free medical device registration process, Regmeddevice (CCRMD, Ltd) came into existence as a trusted partner for manufacturers navigating the complex regulatory landscape.
CCRMD traces its roots back to the passion and perseverance of its CEO, Elena Zarubina. Initially, Elena worked as an operating nurse in an oncological medical center. Later, she transitioned to a role as a specialist-expert, meticulously scrutinizing documentation and protocols for medical devices within the Federal health service registration framework. This is when she noticed a recurring issue – her department often encountered incorrect documents, reports and protocols from applicants. These errors in the documents, regular questions from manufacturers – all this complicated and increased the timeframe for reviewing the dossier and the process as a whole. This experience and the desire to establish productive work in the field of registration of medical devices prompted specialist Elena to quit her job and start her own company, Center of Certification and Registration of Medical Devices in 2011. At the heart of it all was a simple goal –to create a platform where any medical device manufacturer could avail support in preparing precise documents, conducting essential tests, and seeking expert consultations. Every year, as new regulations for the medical device industry were introduced and demands for compliance increased, the company evolved, expanding its team of experts and acquiring new capabilities. Today, after almost 13 years, CCRMD stands tall as a living testament to Elena’s vision – a powerhouse of competence, featuring a dedicated team, steadfast partners, and over a decade of expertise in the intricate field of medical device registration.
