The new MDR & IVDR requirements pose critical challenges for Medical Device companies. As a Life Science professional working with Quality, you may already know that timelines to implement these requirements are critical: MDR & IVDR must be a business priority. At the moment, there is little awareness of these new requirements, their impact, or the resources needed.

Join this Medical Device Network Group to discuss your challenges together with industry peers and subject-matter-experts. We’ll meet over coffee & croissants to discuss the most important challenges of the day, and gain valuable inspiration, insights, and operational tips.  This first meeting of the Network Group is focused on MDR & IVDR.

At this first meeting, Hanne Harbo Hansen, Principal Consultant at Epista Life Science, will share her industry expertise, followed by Q&A and discussion. Hanne will discuss an often-overlooked aspect of an MDR or IVDR project -  change management and project management. She'll explore how you can get a holistic overview to assess and implement these new requirements.

With little awareness of the impact that new regulatory requirements will have on the company, Quality professionals are in an important position. Time is of the essence, and it is up to you to convey how critical it is to upper management. You must approach management, get resources, make timelines, and assess the impact within the company, then start up and structure the project. Hanne will explore these topics, using a case example from a Swedish Medical Device company. If you’re a QA or SME that must request resources from your management chain and want to find the best way to structure a project to do so, you need this holistic overview to succeed.

We will discuss:

- How to approach management
- How to set up change management
- How to start up and structure the project
