Medical Device Directive (MDD) to Medical Device Regulation (MDR) Training Course

On May 25th 2021, the Medical Devices Regulation (EU) 2017/745) will substitute the Medical Devices Directive (93/42/EEC) as the new  regulation that defines the requirements that the medical device manufacturers must satisfy in order to place medical devices in the European Union market. As a result, every medical device manufacturer must consider the impact of these regulatory changes not only on their quality management system but also on their activities and business objectives. This is why MDR QMS training courses are essential for all medical device manufacturers as well as their business partners. Specially those belonging to their supply chain.


This change brings with it an array of new requirements including but not limited to more specificity related to the inspection of technical documentation including those related to clinical evaluation, post-production clinical follow-ups, and traceability of medical devices through the supply chain. It also brings many changes related to risk management that shall be implemented throughout the quality management system. To comply with the EU-MDR, manufacturers need to plan and implement a systematic update of the quality management system affected processes that should be based on understanding each required output. Only by implementing a comprehensive system approach review and update will manufacturers ensure not only that their system is conformant to the new requirements but that this status can be mantained over time.
