Implementing the EU’s New Medical Device Regulation (MDR 2017/745)

Can't travel? This class is also available virtually.

New quality system requirements, classification rules, and conformity assessment procedures – these are just a
few of the hurdles that manufacturers must clear to sell their devices in the European Union (EU) now that the new Medical Device Regulation has been published. 

The new European Union Medical Device Regulation (MDR 2017/745) represents a considerable change from the directives it is replacing. Device manufacturers who conduct business in the EU must start their transition now in order to meet the May 26, 2021 transition deadline. This course is a critical first step. 

During this instructor-led class (online or classroom format available) you will learn about the new requirements in the EU Medical Device Regulation (MDR), including those related to quality systems, product classification rules, technical documentation, clinical evaluations, Unique Device Identification (UDI), and postmarket surveillance. You will also learn how to plan an efficient implementation of the new regulation.

Note: focus of this course is Medical Devices. For IVDs, see our IVDR Implementation Class
