The most challenging points of the transition period from MDD to MDR – and their solution

Sponsored by: HungaroTrial CRO

Focused on:

  • Mdr
  • Mdd

Date: 5 December


Time: 4PM London/11AM New York/8AM San Francisco

The European Union’s new Medical Devices Regulation (MDR), which replaces a decades-old legislation, will require manufacturers to make significant changes in product development, data reporting and their quality management system.
As a result, device manufacturers can expect higher costs and longer timelines for developing new products, as well as costly new clinical monitoring and evidence generation to recertify many existing products, deeply affecting business models of all medical and diagnostic device companies.

Within our webinar we will provide you with a clear and comprehensive picture about the main changes and challenges faced by manufacturers under the new EU regulations, and how our services will ensure an early compliance which can lead optimal progress of your product development and CE certification.

The webinar will give you details about the most important changes in the MDR:

- Transition period from MDD to MDR – timelines and due dates
- Reclassification of certain devices – new challenges
- New requirements for Technical Documentation
- Clinical testing requirements – sources of Clinical Data for CE Marking
- The mandatory Post-Market Clinical Follow-up

We will provide details about how HungaroTrial can help you to find the appropriate transition path from MDD to MDR by providing services for planning, managing and reporting clinical trials as well as consultation support in defining, managing and performing the conformity assessment process leading to obtaining the CE mark for your product within the shortest realistic timeframe.

The webinar will be followed by a Q&A session for you to get direct feedback on key areas of uncertainty. Book your place today.
