Training Course: Understanding Labelling and UDI for Medical Devices and IVDs

Gain a comprehensive understanding of the labelling and UDI requirements under the new EU MDR & IVDR and develop strategies for successful implementation

LIVE Online Training Course | 25-26 October 2021 | 10am - 5pm CEST

Course Overview

As the Medical Device and IVD industries transition to the new EU MDR and IVDR regulations, organisations must implement new processes across a wide spectrum of regulatory areas to remain compliant. Labelling is one of these areas which has undergone a change in requirements and now includes Unique Device Identification (UDI) and expanded content requirements.

On this course you will explore the new requirements, cross examining them with the requirements of the Directives. You will deep dive into the UDI requirements, fully understanding what is needed on the label and how it links up with the new EUDAMED database. Crucially, you will develop strategies to transition to the new labelling requirements, considering supply chain issues and Notified Body concerns. You will also explore how labelling is connected to important areas/departments like PMS and design development and how these areas can influence the label.
