The legislation outlining the requirements for the medical device market in the European Union is changing. 
Regulation (EU) 2017/745 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 5 April 2017 on medical devices, amending Directive 2001/83/EC, Regulation (EC) No 178/2002 and Regulation (EC) No 1223/2009 and repealing Council Directives 90/385/EEC and 93/42/EEC. 
The new Medical Device regulations place greater emphasis on accountability for all players and with greater scrutiny of both clinical evaluation and post- market clinical evaluations and improved traceability of devices for the full life cycle. 
It is essential that personnel involved in the Medical Device Industry understand the core fundamentals behind the MDR Regulation. 
This online training is designed to allow you break down the MDR regulation into 16 bitesize chunks and (at your own pace), build and enhance your existing knowledge. 
We recommend delegates undertaking the E-Learning then attend the more advanced MDR workshop where specifics can be further discussed and explained by a tutor.
