2-day In-person Seminar: Understanding and Implementing the Medical Device Directive (FDA GXP Compliance -)
|Event Date/Time: Jul 19, 2012||End Date/Time: Jul 20, 2012|
Most medical devices marketed in the European Union must follow the Medical Device Directive (MDD); IVD device and active implantable devices have other directives. The MDD can be complicated, especially for US companies, because the MDDâ€™s approach is different than the regulatory approach in the US. For example, under the MDD your company makes â€œsubmissionsâ€ to a private company that you hire, not to a government agency.
This interactive two-day course will help you comprehensively understand details of the MDD and implement its requirements. Attendees will learn how to classify devices, select the appropriate conformity assessment path, prepare the required documentation, and maintain it. During the course, participants will have exercises that apply the principles and help solidify learning.
The instructor addresses the details of the MDD and includes other significant issues such as the Quality Management System (ISO 13485), Risk Management (ISO 14971), Clinical Evaluation (MDD Annex X), and the role of harmonized standards.

- Understand the role of product directives in the EU
