ABHI Malcolm Carlisle Memorial Lecture

1 June 2017 CMS Cameron McKenna Nabarro Olswang LLP, Cannon Place, 78 Cannon Street, London EC4N 6AF

The speaker for the Association of British Healthcare Industries (ABHI)'s fourth Malcolm Carlisle Memorial Lecture will be Professor Christopher Hodges, Professor of Justice Systems at Oxford University and Fellow of Wolfson College, who has profoundly influenced government thinking on regulation and enforcement. This is clearly demonstrated in the Cabinet Office’s policy paper on Regulatory Futures published in January 2017 which outlines a new approach to regulation and offers businesses who grasp the opportunity a more productive relationship with regulators.

Professor Hodges will address fundamental and significant changes which are due to take place in the next few years concerning the way in which all aspects of regulation are enforced across industry and society at large. He will explain how the application of regulation must become more co-operative between regulator and regulated. He will also explain how government as part of this trend will seek to recover the cost of regulation in fees, and how business can both minimise its costs and benefit from the new regime. He will outline a possible role for industry associations in supporting an essential element of the new approach of 'self-assurance in regulation'.

If you are concerned about industry's relationship with government, you should not miss this free, thought-provoking lecture, which will be the first public presentation of these groundbreaking ideas on the future of regulatory practice in relation to the medical technology sector.
