EU MDR and IVDR Webinar: Prepare for your Transition


Both the Medical Device Regulation (MDR) and the In Vitro Diagnostic Medical Device Regulation (IVDR) were published in the EU Official Journal on May 5, 2017, and formally came into force on May 25, 2017. Medical device manufacturers have a three-year transition period for MDR while IVDR has a five-year transition period.

The new regulations objective is to ensure EU legislations are on par with medical advances, to protect the safety of the community and the patient.

This webinar aims to help increase your knowledge of the new MDR and IVDR regulations.

In the webinar session, the following topics will be discussed:

  • MDR and IVDR: introduction and general information
  • SGS: designation of scope and timelines for MDR and IVDR
  • Transition timelines: cut-off dates for directives
  • Transition modalities
    • What we need to know
    • What we need to define together
    • When we should start
  • How SGS can help
