Is your organization facing hurdles regarding MDR certification? What about recertification under MDD? Join RAPS and Celegence for a webcast where regulatory leaders from global medical device companies will share their perspective and lessons learned regarding the challenges - both past and future - related to EU MDR.

During the discussion panel, you will have the opportunity to ask questions and develop a comprehensive and advanced understanding of potential strategic solutions for MDR compliance, regardless of where you are in the transition process. You will also learn how to take advantage of the extension for both MDD renewal and MDR implementation.

Join us and get your questions on MDR certification and recertification under MDD answered by Celegence experts.
