The IMDRF was established in October 2011 and is a voluntary forum for medical device regulators from different jurisdictions who have agreed to work together to advance international regulatory harmonisation and convergence in the field of medical devices. The IMDRF builds on the strong foundational work of the Global Harmonization Task Force on Medical Devices (GHTF) which was established in 1992 with the United States as one of the founding members.
