Faculty: Edwin Waldbusser | Code: MD3295
The EU MDR replaced the MDD and expands the conformance requirements. Several parts of the MDR have been delayed for several years. New requirements are added and existing requirements are expanded. Emphasis is placed on lifecycle control and post market analysis. Reliance on “Substantial Equivalence” is discouraged. UID requirements are added. The supply chain has increased legal and regulatory responsibility.
Products intended to be imported into the EU must conform to these new regulations. Arrangements must be made with a Notified Body, an Authorized Representative and a Person Responsible for Regulatory Compliance. There is extensive preparation necessary.
