Open Training: MDR How to write a Technical file

October 18, 2018 - October 18, 2018 / Europe

Date:  18 October 2018

Location:   Amsterdam Area

 Presentations will be in English

Cost: Regular:  € 875.-                                    


The EU-MDR introduces a new view on technical documentation, that is broader than the current view on technical files and design dossiers (class III). It differentiates between data needed prior to market access (MDR annex II) and post market data (annex III). With all the changes one can only conclude that all technical files and design dossiers need to be revised to match the EU-MDR requirements.


The Training

This training focusses on practical guidance to fulfill the technical documentation requirements in the EU-MDR. It clarifies what is needed for annex II technical documentation that needs to be ready (and reviewed by Notified Bodies as appropriate) before the market introduction of the new product. It will clarify the approaches and extent of data collection in the post-market phase. And it will provide insight into the requirements for Periodic Safety Update Reports and for Summary of Safety and Clinical Performance that will be part of the growing technical documentation for the products over its lifetime. The day will be filled with discussions and case studies.
