Medical Device Regulation (EU MDR) 2017/745

The MDR (EU 2017/745) has replaced the MDD (93/42/EEC) as the legislation detailing the requirements that manufacturers must comply with in order to place medical devices on the market within the EU.​

Our industry-leading experts have created a 2-day MDR training course to help medical device manufacturers understand the additional requirements of the regulation, so you know what you need to do for your business and products to meet the new MDR.​

The certification you will earn from this training can be used to demonstrate your knowledge to your Employers and Notified Bodies.
