SGS LAUNCHES ELEARNING COURSES ON THE MEDICAL DEVICE REGULATION (MDR) AND THE IN VITRO DIAGNOSTIC REGULATION (IVDR)

SGS LAUNCHES ELEARNING COURSES ON THE MEDICAL DEVICE REGULATION (MDR) AND THE IN VITRO DIAGNOSTIC REGULATION (IVDR)
14/08/2018

Both the Medical Device Regulation (MDR) and the In Vitro Diagnostic Medical Device Regulation (IVDR) were published in the EU Official Journal on 5 May, 2017, and formally came into force on 25 May, 2017. Medical device manufacturers have a three-year transition period for MDR while IVDR has a five-year transition period.

To help medical device and in vitro diagnostic device manufacturers with the complexity of the new regulations, we have developed eLearning courses introducing the key changes and implications. These courses also enable you to understand how these regulations affect your organisation.

When asked about the impact of these courses, Laurent Corbaz, SGS Global Head of Training, said: "SGS Academy strives to develop courses that bring value to our learners and their respective organisations. The development of these eLearning courses aim to deliver a comprehensive and modern approach to understand the complexity of these regulations and to equip and further improve the safety and transparency of the manufacturers and the medical devices they produce."
