In Europe, products classified as medical devices are subject to stringent regulatory requirements to ensure the product’s safety & performance. To maintain patient safety the EU introduced the Medical Device Regulation (MDR) transforming and modernising the older Directives. Whether you are new to regulatory affairs, the MDR or are branching out from other areas of the wider medical device industry, this fundamental-level course will detail the EU regulatory requirements throughout the entire product life cycle. 
Complemented with practical exercises and open discussions, you will gain a comprehensive overview of the essential European regulatory requirements to consider as you prepare for MDR implementation, including: the European regulatory landscape, device classification and conformity assessments, documentation and labelling requirements, post-market considerations, risk management and clinical evaluations.
