Online workshop: Lessons learned on the new MDR for medical devices!

May 27

14:00:00 - 16:00:00

Event summary

A more in-depth / advanced MDR workshop based on practical examples of the attendants

One day after the final date of application of the Medical Device Regulation (EU 2017/745) this workshop will start with a brief presentation on the updates of the MDR and guidance documentation, the status of the designation of the Notified Bodies & the status on the initial audits under the MDR.

Additionally, the workshop will focus on a selection of important topics of the MDR. Attendants may choice which topics they would like to discuss in detail, like:

1. Clinical evaluation process: What is enough data? How to gather the data?
2. Post Market Surveillance process (including PMS plan, PSURs, PMCF)
3. Eudamed/UDI; Registration
4. How to prepare an initial MDR audit; What to expect?
5. Risk Management process
6. Other topics …

You will get an insight in how you can comply with the MDR requirements regarding the implementation of the Technical Documentation of your devices and the Quality Management System of your company. 

The approach of the workshop is to have an interactive & in-depth discussion with the attendance using practical examples. The attendance will leave with more knowledge on the practical implementation of specific MDR requirements.
