Gain a practical understanding of IVD PMS and vigilance strategies under the MDR to ensure compliance

Course Overview

The PMS requirements of the Medical Device Regulation (MDR) apply to all manufacturers of medical devices from May 2020, even those who continue to place legacy devices on the market (devices certified under the AIMDD or MDD). However, because the implementation of Eudamed (the European database) has been postponed, all medical devices will continue to be subject to some of the provisions of the directives, including those that have achieved CE marking under the new Regulation.

Using a combination of theory and practical case studies, this course will clarify the transition of old requirements to new ones and will allow delegates to develop the knowledge needed to build successful PMS strategies and understand the latest requirements and technologies for reporting vigilance.
