The United States of America (USA) & Canada are the most lucrative markets for medical devices in terms of market acceptance as well as in terms of existent regulations required for necessary licenses and approvals. With a strong demand for high-quality medical device technologies, the USA and Canada markets continue to attract manufacturers worldwide. But tracking, decoding, and aligning with region-specific medical device Regulatory requirements, at times, poses a challenge for manufacturers if not implemented intelligently.
