Is Your Company Ready for the EU MDR Overhaul?

The EU Medical Device Regulation (EU MDR) requires more than a few new SOPs. A profound overhaul of the regulatory approach in one of the world’s largest medical device markets, the EU MDR demands new procedures, evidence development, documentation, relationships, reporting, data management, and a reevaluation of legacy portfolios.

 Senior management should be involved in strategic planning for changes that can significantly affect a company’s business.

The following points must be completed in detail with employee
training and Medpoint can help in achieving and meeting the following EU

The European Medical Device Regulation (EUMDR) ensures high standards of quality and safety for medical devices
being produced in or supplied into Europe. EU MDR had a fundamental revision in 2017 to better identify medical devices products and improve transparency through standard data, technological advances and the establishment of an EU database (Eudamed). Similar to the FDA’s UDI, EU MDR will establish a robust, transparent, predictable and sustainable regulatory framework for medical devices to ensure a high level of health and safety whilst supporting innovation. Medpoint can help to achieve these goals.

EU MDR is relevant to any organization producing or supplying medical device products to Europe. Medpoint can help your organization every step of the way or can cater to your unique needs in this area.
