The new EU Medical Device Regulation (MDR) promises to improve product quality and safety by relying more on clinical evaluations and data, even for devices that have been on the market for a long time. The MDR will replace the Medical Devices Directive (MDD) and Active Implantable Medical Devices Directive (AIMDD) in May 2020.

Manufacturers must thoroughly assess all product portfolios, ensuring all clinical, regulatory and quality data are complete and traceable. This task is costly and time-consuming and becoming increasingly frustrating as the deadline draws closer.

How can device manufacturers prepare for the new EU MDR? How will this change business operations? How will the new EU MDR impact the future of medical devices?

These five Xtalks webinars have all the answers. Register for free to watch each informative presentation!
