Course Overview


Regulatory affairs is a critical function within the medical device sector to maintain patient safety. Regulatory requirements impact all areas of device development, so it is important for regulatory professionals to have a comprehensive understanding. In addition, the Medical Device Regulation (MDR) was introduced in Europe to replace the Medical Device Directive (MDD) to improve patient safety throughout Europe.


This course will provide you with a comprehensive understanding of the regulatory requirements from device classification and conformity assessment routes to clinical requirements and post market factors. You will develop a deep knowledge of the MDR and its impact throughout device development and distribution. The course will also fine tune your regulatory soft skills so you can continuously maintain your regulatory knowledge and perform with confidence.


With the Educo Post Learning Implementation Plan (PLIP) you will have the framework to apply and implement the knowledge acquired in the training, supporting you in your development. Learn more about how we deliver classroom and live online training.
