On 5 May 2017, the European Commission published the Medical Device Regulation (MDR) 2017/45 with a transition period of three years. This date of application (DoA) was moved due to COVID-19 to 26th of May 2021, enabling the stakeholders to have sufficient time to transition to this legislation.  The regulation brings more stringent obligations and increased scrutiny on both manufacturers and notified bodies. 

Attend this session to learn the latest updates that can help your organization overcome obstacles for placing devices in the EU under MDR and ensure market continuity after the application date. This webcast is presented by leading MDR expert Dr. Bassil Akra, and the topics to be covered include: 

  • Update about the status of designation;
  • Status of the different implementation measures;
  • Lessons learned from the first MDR conformity assessments;
  • Remote Audits;
  • Duties and responsibilities of the various economic operators and notified bodies from DoA; and
  • Strategies to effectively work with notified bodies.

This presentation will feature a Q&A session in the middle and end of the webcast.

This event is brought to you by the RAPS Chicago chapter to encourage knowledge sharing and community development. RAC holders may claim 2.0 RAC recertification credits.
