On 5 May 2017, the European Commission adopted the new Medical Device Regulation (MDR) 2017/745. There is a three-year transition period, ending in May 2020, after which the regulation will take effect. Device manufacturers have the duration of this transition period to update their technical documents and processes to meet the standards.

Come engage with professionals from your local regulatory community for an interactive presentation on how to prepare for the implementation. The new regulation introduces more stringent clinical and post-market surveillance requirements for medical device manufacturers, regardless of risk classification. Come join us and learn strategies that can help your orthopedic device company navigate the higher level of scrutiny.
