Please join us for a free R&Q Intelligence Series webinar:
EU MDR: Assessing the impact and next steps.

The session will be held on Tuesday, April 25th from 1:00pm - 2:00pm EST. The learning opportunity is free.

Know the essential EU MDR requirements.

The upcoming EU MDR changes are significant, potentially impacting your device classification and the need for clinical data. Considering the overall timeline – including ISO 13485:2016 (March 2019) and MDSAP (if selling in Canada; Jan. 2019) – it will be difficult to get on the notified bodies’ schedules.

The time to plan and act on these changes is now.

Your technical files, design dossiers, quality system documents, clinical plans, labeling (including UDI), software, and more will be affected. Plus new requirements are coming into play, including Eudamed and periodic safety update reports (PSURs).

This webinar will describe what to do now, what to keep your eye on, and real-world examples that show how industry is working through the changes. Interpretations will evolve, but our experts will be able to help you navigate the process.

What will be covered?

In addition to the background/history of EU MDR, the 'stacking effect' for Notified Bodies, and R&Q's proposed solution, the session will cover the key EU MDR changes:
