IEC and IMDRF signed a Memorandum of Understanding in 2018 to exchange strategic information and technical expertise regularly in the area of medical devices. The symposium was a consequence of the agreement.

The goal of the event was to increase dialogue between standards makers, industry players and regulators to achieve greater understanding about the opportunities to use IEC work to support harmonization of regulatory requirements around the world. In addition, the symposium was designed to help regulators have greater appreciation of how they can be involved in IEC work to ensure standardization work takes their needs into account.
