The medical device regulation for EU is renewed. The MDR implementation needs to be completed by Q1 2020, all your devices need to have new certificates. This time the change in regulation is significant, you better be prepared.

Qserve is the largest regulatory consultancy company in EU, having also offices in the US. For the last 2 years, Qserve is busy helping manufacturers to become compliant with the MDR.
Now since the MDR is officially published there is a large number of companies that have read the MDR, however, continue to struggle on 2 levels:

1.  How to interpret the requirements. What does it mean for my company?
2   Implementation of the changed requirements. How does my company close the GAP(s)?

Our 2-day conference will cover both aspects in a practical manner, combining workshops and a speaker from a Notified body. Specific topics will be addressed, and workshops will offer opportunities for in-depth discussions.

Critical impacts of the EU MDR, and how your company will be affected:
•  Understand the Medical Device Regulations approach in Europe
