The MDD can be complicated, especially for US companies, because the MDD’s approach is not the same as the regulatory approach in the US. For example, under the MDD your company makes “submissions” to a private company that you hire, not to a government agency. In addition, things are changing in the European Union. The new standards for quality systems and risk management (EN ISO 13485:2012 & EN ISO 14971:2012) are confusing to implement. Moreover, the EU has proposed a set of regulations that will replace the current directive system.

Boston Public Garden
This Frederick Law Olmsted-designed park, famous for its Swan Boats, has over 600 varieties of trees and an ever-changing array of flowers. It is America's first public garden.
Boston Public Library
The Boston Public Library was the first large municipally-funded public library in America. It has a central location right in the heart of Copley Square, facing the Trinity Church, easily accessible by taking the Green Line to Copley station (or also near to Orange Line Back Bay stop).
Fenway Park is the oldest Major League baseball park in the United States. Its small, intimate atmosphere really allows you to feel like you are "in the game." The park is situated right in downtown Boston - so it is very accessible if you are visiting the area.
Museum of Fine Arts
Boston's oldest, largest and best-known art institution, the MFA houses one of the world's most comprehensive art collections and is renowned for its Impressionist paintings, Asian and Egyptian collections and early American art.
Museum of Science
The Boston Museum of Science is a long-standing tradition for families in Boston, but that doesn't mean adults won't enjoy themselves too! Their exhibits range from dinosaurs to space travel to wildlife to physics to human biology to an in-depth look at Boston's "Big Dig" project.
This Italian neighborhood, Boston's oldest, is known for its wonderful restaurants and historic sights.
Old North Church
The signal from the steeple of Boston's oldest church triggered the War for Independence that led to the birth of America. On that fateful night in 1775, the two lanterns in the steeple told Paul Revere that the British were approaching by boat, not on foot.
