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?  This workshop aims to provide inside in some of the barriers to get to production of low quantities.

During the 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). You will  present your production process afterwards and finally we discuss the do's and don'ts together.

After the workshop, you will have knowledge of the requirements needed to implement in your production process. Tips and tricks have also been given for your production process.
