Leading Solutions from Global Experts for the Approaching EU MDR

RAC Credits
Wednesday, 13 November 2019 (9:00 AM) - Thursday, 14 November 2019 (4:00 PM) Pacific Time (US & Canada)
2151 Laurelwood Rd
Santa Clara, California, USA, 95054-2754

With just over 6 months to go before the date of application of the EU MDR 2017/745, manufacturers need to have strategies and action plans in place to meet the requirements and challenges posed by this new regulation. This event will tackle the detailed “how to” questions manufacturers may have across many of the MDR hot topics. It will not address clinical data and evaluation, as that is very detailed and being hotly debated; This will clear the way to focus on the many other detailed issues manufacturers may have such as Economic Operators, Systems and Procedure Packs, Labeling/IFU/Implant Card, EU UDI requirements and practice, PMS and trend reporting (Art. 88), Art. 117 and drug-device combination products, Software, Hazardous Materials and Changes that can be made during the Soft Transition. Several Notified Body experts will also be on hand to give an overview of more general status and preparations (including Brexit, Eudamed, Harmonized Standards, CS, class Ir etc.) and participate with the other speakers in an open Q&A session.

This workshop is aimed at the mid-level regulatory affairs professional who is responsible for applying the EU MDR requirements to his/her organization’s products. Knowledge of the MDD is not required but does help provide a better understanding. Basic knowledge of the requirements of MDR would be beneficial, as would real-world challenges and issues posed by implementing the MDR requirements within their own organization
