The Interpretation of Clinical Guidances & Regulations Initiative shares expertise to more efficiently and effectively meet the intent of ambiguous regulations/guidances and Health Authority operational expectations around the world. Secondarily, the initiative will take opportunities to raise Health Authority awareness of the real-life impact of ambiguous regulations/guidelines. While addressing these aims, the initiative will consider the highest priority to be continued enhancement of patient safety.
