Fundaments of the EU-MDR 

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.

Implementing the EU-MDR requires a structural approach since the transition to the EU-MDR CE certificates can last over several years.

Do you need to know more than the basics of the MDR? Our 2-day course has been designed to introduce medical device manufacturers to the key changes in the requirements for CE Marking.
