Medical Devices Directive (MDD) to Medical Devices Regulation (MDR) Transition training course

BSI has always worked hard to understand the current regulatory requirements in order for us to create training solutions that meet the needs of your organization. We work to ensure our training is robust, accurate and offers value to clients, whether we are training on existing standards, legislations, or business improvement. We are one of few certification bodies offering diverse medical device training portfolios consisting of specialized training courses.

BSI is currently working on our in-depth interpretation of the MDR and IVDR, published in May 2017, and as such will not be offering training to the new Regulations until we can offer you detailed and accurate transition courses. As part of our Notified Body re-designation work, we are currently furthering our understanding and clarifying areas, which we believe, are not fully clear with the current information available.

As such, we are planning to launch our new transition training courses, incorporating the MDR/IVDR in early 2018 once we are clearer about the interpretation of some the new requirements and how they will affect your organization.

Please express interest with us now and we will follow up with you once the courses are available.


Course overview

The Medical Devices Regulation (EU 2017/745) has replaced the Medical Devices Directive (93/42/EEC) as the legislation detailing the requirements that manufacturers have to meet to place medical devices on the market in the European Union.

This long awaited text brings with it more scrutiny of technical documentation, including clinical evaluation and post-market clinical follow-up, and traceability of devices through the supply chain.
