Introduzione

The EU Regulation on Medical Devices 2017/745 (MDR) significantly changed the landscape for the medical device industry.
The Regulation introduced novel requirements in critical areas such as stronger Notified Body (NB) and Competent Authority (CA) oversight, improved General Safety and Performance Requirements, Publicity of data, Clinical Requirements, and scrutiny for advertisement and claims.

Also, national regulations provide specific requirements for the advertisement of devices, prior approval requirements by authorities and transparency regulations for relations with health care professionals (HCPs).

This course gives insight into the laws and regulations governing the marketing and promotion of medical devices in the European Union (EU).
It helps the industry keep their sales reps, marketing professionals, and other employees that have contact with healthcare providers in compliance with these laws and provides guidance on establishing effective marketing and claims compliance processes.
