Basics for Medical Device Advisors: Regulatory requirements according to MPG

In the function as a medical device advisor, you perform a responsible activity that carries legally defined rights and obligations in Austria. These national requirements remain as essential components of the new Medical Devices Act (MPG).

In this basic course for medical device consultants, you will deepen your knowledge of the essential nationally and internationally valid legal foundations.

According to the MPG, manufacturers or a person or body appointed by them are obliged to provide regular training for medical device advisors (including proof of training). We support you in this!
