EU MDR Training for the European Medical Device Regulation (2017/745)

The EU MDR represents a considerable change from the directives it replaced. These instructor-led classes cover the new requirements in the EU Medical Device Regulation (2017/745), including those related to quality systems, technical documentation, General Safety and Performance Requirements, and postmarket activities. You will also learn how to plan an efficient implementation of the new regulation. This class is for medical device organizations that need a foundation in the EU MDR. If you are an experienced auditor and need to learn how to perform audits to the EU MDR requirements, choose our EU MDR auditor class instead.
