I. Conference background 
The Regulation on the Supervision and Administration of Medical Devices clearly states that China should establish a medical device adverse event monitoring system. Medical device vigilance refers to activities of monitoring, identifying, assessing, and controlling medical device adverse events based on medical device adverse event monitoring and reevaluation, to improve the medical device safety risk control ability. In the face of continuous innovation in medical device products, ensuring product safety has become an intrinsic requirement for industry innovation. It’s important to pay high attention to and strengthen medical device vigilance for medical device R&D, production, use, and regulation under the new situation. 
The China Medical Device Vigilance Conference, previously known as the China Medical Devices Risk Management Seminar or the China Medical Devices Risk Management Forum, has been held successfully for five sessions. Closely around the national and industrial development strategies, the China Medical Device Vigilance Conference focuses on the hotspots in the development of medical device regulation and has achieved extensive social influence by launching a series of forward-looking, open and application-based high-end academic exchange activities. 
In order to further deepen society’s understanding of medical device vigilance and strengthen lifecycle risk prevention and control of medical devices, the Conference will invite famous scholars and industry experts in the fields of medical device R&D, production and use in China as well as experts from domestic and foreign regulatory agencies to exchange ideas on their latest research results, look into future development trends and contribute to the high-quality development of medical device vigilance. 
II. Conference theme 
Themed “Innovation, Cooperation, Sharing and Promoting High-quality Development of Medical Device Vigilance”, the Conference will center on medical device regulations and new regulatory initiatives, risk management of innovative medical device products, application of real-world data in medical device vigilance, etc. for in-depth discussion.
