Course Overview

As the Medical Devices and IVD industries transition to the EU MDR 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) as well as expanded content requirements.

On this course, you will explore the new requirements, cross-examining them with the requirements of the Medical Device Directive. You will deep dive into the UDI requirements, get to grips with 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 address Notified Body concerns. You will also explore how labelling is connected to other important regulatory aspects such as PMS and design development and how these areas can influence the label.
