The MDR is coming – ZINDEL highlights what's important

A new EU Directive is expected to come into force this year with the "Medical Device Regulation (MDR)" which is intended to supercede the currently applicable "Medical Device Directive (MDD)". This will have far-reaching consequences. Unlike the MDD, the MDR is a regulation and, immediately after resolution, will apply in all EU countries as it no longer needs to be transposed into national law. And it will have much more stringent rules for the documentation of medical products than before: In the future, for example, these products must be comprehensible for all parties involved – authorities as well as medical specialists and patients.

Because this requires facts and orientation. Here at ZINDEL, we provide you with both and therefore cordially invite you to an exciting and highly topical seminar day on the complex subject of "Product information for medical devices".

Three expert lectures and a practical report will shed light on the new requirements against the background of current legislation. The seminar is aimed at managing directors, heads of department, editors and translators who are responsible for the development and approval of medical devices as well as for instructions for use.
