Read Frequently Asked Questions

This webinar will provide valuable assistance and guidance to medical device companies that are preparing for CE Mark and ensuring compliance to MDD 93/42/EEC.

You might be interested in knowing that the European Commission has finally released a consolidated version of the revised Medical Devices Directive. The original Directive 93/42/EEC (published in 1993) was amended in late 2007 with the publication of Directive 2007/47/EC, but a combined version of those two Directives was not published at that time, making it difficult to interpret the changes Directive 2007/47/EC had on the original MDD. Originally created July 12, 1993 and mandatory since June 14, 1998, the Directive requires that companies wishing to sell medical devices within the EU must meet the requirements under the directive. The regulations under this mandate can vary from member country to member country concerning translation of key documents to other regulatory laws specific to that region. These additions supplement the set of harmonized standards put in place by the European Commission. These harmonized standards serve to free the flow of goods from one market to another within the EU Medical Device industry. Today, all medical devices sold in the EU must have the CE marking affixed to demonstrate compliance to this directive. If your device falls within the scope of the Medical Devices Directive, then you must meet the essential requirements of that law.

Areas Covered in the seminar:

  • Learn about the latest changes to the directive and impact on medical device manufacturers.
  • Understand how to apply and use the Conformity Assessment Procedure.
