Join our Webinar, EU MDR Labeling Compliance: Learn the Lessons from UDI

Join us 5-6 December 2017 for MedTech Digital Week, a 2-day series of live educational webcasts and downloadable resources on the latest EU MDR, IVDR and Emerging Market Regulation updates

EU MDR Labeling Compliance: Learn the Lessons from UDI

EU MDR is being viewed as an extension of the FDA’s UDI (Unique Device Identification), but also a ‘step up’. However, it’s more detailed and more complex due to the local language requirements needed for Europe.

The introduction of UDI requirements into the EU is good news for organizations that are already along the pathway of adopting systems and processes to support FDA UDI compliance. However, for those that aren’t – and indeed those that may have made only basic adjustments to their labeling infrastructure in response to the regulations – there are five key learnings that have emerged from the UDI experience that may help inform best practice adoption with EU MDR.

Join us for this 60-minute information packed webinar to discover why EU MDR will change the medical device labeling landscape globally and how to best meet the impending challenges.

Key Learning Objectives:

  • Understand what EU MDR compliance means for your business and how it will affect your labeling processes
  • Develop an understanding of the market’s perceptions of EU MDR
  • Recognize what the biggest labeling compliance challenges ahead are and how to proactively overcome them
  • Embrace the lessons from UDI to work smarter in meeting the implementation deadlines of MDR by May 2020 and IVDR by May 2022
  • Learn about a labeling system that can adapt to regulations that will be following for other countries that are not part of the US or EU, so that any new regulation does not have a similar size impact
