Careers in Regulatory Affairs at Cook

Cook is truly patient focused in the work we do. We have always prioritised patient safety while providing innovative products and solutions. Our Regulatory Affairs teams are central to holding Cook to the highest standards because everything we do has an impact on someone’s life.

We have Regulatory Affairs teams in Ireland, Denmark, the US, Australia, and Asia and are currently recruiting for roles in our Limerick, Ireland, site. The two Regulatory Affairs teams at Cook Medical’s site in Limerick, Ireland, are an experienced group of professionals who drive regulatory excellence through cross-functional collaboration and continuous improvement. This enables them to present Cook Medical devices to regulators globally, to obtain and maintain market authorisations and continuously monitor their safety and performance.

One team is based at the manufacturing site and are responsible for regulations in over 60 countries for both of Cook’s clinical divisions. The second team is established at the EU Authorised Representative office who represent all Cook Medical devices to regulators in Europe. They ensure a focused and consistent approach to the EU Medical Device Regulations (EU MDR) across Cook Medical.
