Getting Your Regulatory Ducks in a Row - Why a Regulatory Information Strategy is Critical for Successful MDR/IVDR Transitions

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand the information (submission and maintenance) requirements for key facets of MDR and IVDR, and how they compare to MDD/IVDD.
  • Evaluate current information management approaches, and their ability to support long-term compliance.
  • Employ digital strategies to improve information management, increase efficiency, and ensure medical device and IVD products remain compliant and on the market.

Digital strategy and regulatory changes aren’t always considered in tandem, but the significant changes introduced with the MDR and IVDR regulations have created both a need and an opportunity for RA teams to leverage a better approach to regulatory information management. This webinar explores the new information requirements associated with MDR/IVDR including GSPRs, UDI/EUDAMED, and Post-market surveillance and reporting.

Successful compliance with all of these information requirements will be hard to achieve for teams that aren’t also thinking through how they digitize and manage information internally. In the broadcast we’ll outline some of the challenges associated with traditional approaches to regulatory information management, and how a shift to a product-centric vs project-centric approach can make information more accessible and usable across teams and processes.
