Workshop on Regulation (EU) 2017/745 on medical devices


The transition period for Regulation (EU) 2017/745 on medical devices started on 26th May 2017. Its date of application was 26th May 2020, after the transition period had elapsed. In the intervening years, more and more provisions in this new regulation have come into force; authorities, notified bodies and manufacturers have been readying themselves for the next steps.

On a company-specific basis, the workshop considers the company's product range and is primarily designed for businesses that market medical devices under their own name. The additional roles that a company adopts as an actor (e.g. distributor, representative) are also included.


This workshop will explain the basics of the regulation and the most important changes and new aspects compared to Directive 93/42/EEC. This workshop is intended to provide participants with the opportunity to discuss company-specific regulations as a group and to ensure that their knowledge is up to date. It should enable the responsible teams within the company to introduce the next steps for implementing the regulation in a targeted manner.
