New EU MDR and IVDR: Understanding Key Changes, Impacts and Actions

Tuesday, 20 September  |  2:45–3:30pm  |  Exhibit Hall

Speaker: Theresa Jeary, technical services manager, medical devices certification, LRQA

With the publication of the new EU Medical Device and IVD Regulations, it is critical to understand the key changes and impact they will have on manufacturers. 

The revised regulations seek to ensure medical device safety in two important ways: first, by strengthening the rules for placing devices on the market; and second, by tightening surveillance once they are available. 

These major revisions will require some changes to the way manufacturers do business - including applying the risk-based classification matrix, managing product conformity, improving traceability and creating additional clinical and performance evidence. 

Manufacturers need to be proactive in implementing the new regulations. Join this session to gain an understanding of the key changes, impact, transition phase and key steps to be taken.
