TechMed workshop series (4/6) - Production Production of medical devices in low quantities

THE WORKSHOP

Production of medical devices in low quantities.

Are you (intending on) running a small business in the medical devices industry? Currently struggling with the challenges of the Medical Device Directive or ISO13485 to produce small amounts of MedTech products?  

During this workshop you will learn how to set up a production process for medical devices, based on your own case. You will, together with other attendees, set up the production process, with the emphasis on the requirements set by the ISO13485: 2016 and the MDD (or MDR). The teacher will give you tips and tricks for your production process. You will present your production process afterwards and we discuss the do's and don'ts together.

Note: Due to the fact you will work in a group with different attendees,  only one case will be discussed per group.

course aim

During this workshop you will learn more about the background, but also about practical issues. Your own cases will be used for hands-on practice during the workshop.

Main goals are:

  • Providing insights of the barriers to get to production of low quantities.
  • How to set up a production process for medical devices, with the emphasis on the requirements set by the ISO13485: 2016 and the MDD (or MDR).
  • Knowing which requirements needed to implement in the production process.

The workshops are organized for (future) entrepreneurs in the medical device industry, take place every 2 months on an afternoon and focus on one specific topic every session. It is possible to attend the complete course, but also separate workshops.
