The Regulatory Education for Industry (REdI) Conference is an FDA-led forum that brings together the regulatory educators from FDA’s Center for Drug Evaluation and Research (CDER) and Center for Devices and Radiological Health (CDRH).

The goal of this conference is to provide direct, relevant, and helpful information on the key aspects of drug and device regulations. Our primary audience is that of small manufacturers of drug and/or device medical products who want to learn about how FDA approaches the regulation of drugs and devices.

Because the regulatory principles of drugs and devices are both similar and different, the REdI Conference features a cross-cutting plenary addressing issues which impact both drugs and devices, as well as individual break-out sessions which focus on the unique issues and regulatory requirements of drugs and devices.


Conference Topics include:

  • CDER: Types of INDs; Chemistry, Manufacturing and Controls (CMC); Pharmacology/Toxicology; Drug Inspections
  • CDRH: 510(k); Biocompatibility in Premarket Submissions; Nonconforming Product; Device Inspections.

Advance registration is required.
When you register, you may choose to attend either on-site at the Hilton Rockville Hotel or virtually online via Adobe Connect. We ask that you please honor your registration commitment to help us plan this conference efficiently. If you need to change your registration commitment, please email us at
