CHECK OUT REGULATORY AFFAIRS Regulatory Affairs is a unique department in a medical device company. As other departments design the device and its packaging, ensure proper testing, craft the labeling, plan production, or prepare the marketing strategy, Regulatory Affairs assembles information from all these other departments to "tell the story" to the regulating authorities for the purpose of gaining their approval to allow the device onto the market. This takes careful explanations in context of the product's intended use, its functionality, how it will be made, how it will be tested, and its risks and benefits.
