Technical Documentation: Requirements under MDR

The new Medical Device Regulation (MDR) has arrived. The Regulations contain enhanced requirements for Technical Documentation – often referred to as the Technical File – for each medical device or family and requires that the information be presented in a clear, organized, readily searchable and unequivocal way. 

The transition period of three years may seem a long time, but the earlier you start strategically planning you product portfolio and initiate a review of the Technical Documentation requirements, the improved chance of successfully meeting the MDR.

The webinar will cover:

  • Overview of Technical Documentation Requirements 
  • New requirements
  • Clinical investigations and equivalence
  • Reclassifications

 This webinar will help you to consider what actions you need to start now to be prepared for the change in requirements; the webinar will allow you to start planning how to meet the new requirements in this area.
