This is the key question for which we are looking to find answers together with you. Not by repeating the MDR basic requirements you’re probably familiar with. We focus on the themes in the MDR where companies still have questions or just need to get more clarity or transparency. This seminar is all about finding answers.

Relevant topics and speakers

We are looking at themes from different perspectives. What legislation or ‘implementing acts’ are yet to come in the next years? What about liability of economic operators? Who is this Person Responsible for Regulatory Compliance? What to expect from Eudamed? What difficulties can you expect on you road to CE re-certification? What about readiness of Notified Bodies? Do you know what an EC Representative stands for?
