Get The Acorn Regulatory Medical Device Regulations Whitepaper

The new medical device regulations (MDR) will come into force in May 2020.  In advance of the deadline, companies across the world are working to ensure that their devices will comply with the new regulations.  For many companies there is still much work to do. Also, companies are still actively seeking further information about the regulations and how they will be applied.

Acorn Regulatory has published its first medical device regulations whitepaper.  The whitepaper looks at a range of issues including:

  • The responsibilities of the Person Responsible for Regulatory Compliance
  • The impact that the new MDR will have on the role of the EU Authorised Representative
  • What are the most important changes to the new MDR?

and most importantly, the medical device regulations whitepaper will look at what actually constitutes a medical device.  The new regulations have widened the definition of what is actually a medical device and this change is bound to have significant impact on manufacturers.

The whitepaper has been published to coincide with Medtech Week.

If you would like to receive a copy of the whitepaper please complete the webform below and we will email a copy to you.
