TechMed Series: Getting started with your CE mark - Session 1 of 8

Register here


Getting your CE Mark is certainly not something you would do on a Friday afternoon but is often underestimated, especially now the regulations have been updated to the MDR. You need a.o. to test the product; by official test houses on legal standards, build up a technical construction dossier, have a quality management system, with approved suppliers and implemented of risk assessments by proven competent team members. Most of these requirements however, could be prepared very early on during the development of a medical device, and makes the CE marking process later on much easier. 

course aim

This training provides you with a starting point of what is changed due to the introduction of the Medical Device Regulation, what required for CE marking and Quality Management.
