The Medical Devices Regulation (MDR) is the legislation detailing the requirements that manufacturers have to meet to place medical devices on the market in the European Union.
The Regulation will affect all medical device manufacturers, importers, distributors and EU Representatives. Subcontractors/suppliers will also be affected, as will manufacturers of some devices without a medical purpose (for example, devices used for esthetical body modification, contact lenses to change eye colour without correcting vision, etc.).
The MDR focusses on device safety and performance, emphasizing pre-market requirements, conformity assessment, quality management aspects, post-market-surveillance (PMS), transparency and traceability. The requirements will also affect (supplier) audits and governmental control, introduce new partners to interact with, and increase communication needs and obligations (e.g. contracts, reporting, documentation, and publication of information).
This course aims to offer guidance on implementation of the requirements stipulated in the MDR. It focusses on enabling you to draw up a clear concept or project plan, and how to integrate the requirements into your business and your documentation. Moreover, you should gain confidence and expertise to evaluate and implement more specific requirements on your own.
