Course Description

The European regulatory landscape has changed, becoming more stringent and technically challenging for medical device companies. With major changes to notified body activities, device classification, clinical data requirements, post-market surveillance, conformity assessment and technical documentation, companies will need to plan carefully to ensure they understand the requirements and have the appropriate data, processes and resources in place.

This two-day course examines the new EU medical device regulations, outlines the major changes that industry will need to be prepared to address, and provides insight into the impact upon medical device companies and the steps they can take to navigate the new regulatory environment.

The NSF EU MDR course includes assessments to ensure that the student has achieved the knowledge and understanding to effectively plan for the new EU regulation, enabling you and your organisation to feel confident that you can implement the forthcoming changes.  This course provides a certificate of successful completion, demonstrating that your knowledge has been evaluated.

Learning Outcomes

By the end of the course you will be able to identify the major changes in the new regulation and interpret and plan the changes. Specifically you will be able to:

  • Determine if a product falls within the scope and definition of a medical device
  • Appropriately classify and outline the appropriate conformity assessment options
  • Evaluate device safety and performance characteristics and select applicable general safety and performance requirements
  • Assess the structure and content of technical documentation for submission and post-market purposes
