This 2-day advanced-level course will critically analyse the regulations covered in our 2-day introductory course Understanding the Medical Device Regulation by answering the following questions; what is the process, and what do I need to include to meet regulatory expectations?
These questions will be answered in the context of technical documentation, the vigilance system, the regulatory hierarchy in the EU, labelling, clinical evaluations and investigations, post-market surveillance and post-market clinical follow-up studies.
In addition, this course will critically examine the Medical Device Regulation (MDR) by outlining the reasons for its development, the key regulatory updates to be aware of and what changes the industry must facilitate to ensure continuing compliance for their products.
Delegates will be able to cement this knowledge through case studies and practical exercises, with additional time on the course provided to discuss the implications of Brexit.
