SIQ: Online-Workshop: Medical Devices – Guidelines for Preparing Technical Documentation (3 days) @ ONLINE
Feb 14 um 09:00 – Feb 29 um 15:00

This workshop will be in English and is part of our new academy cooperation with the Slowenian notified body SIQ!

About the training

Regulation (EU) 2017/745 on Medical Devices (MDR) also deals with the preparation of a technical documentation to demonstrate conformity of a medical device. A technical documentation has gained in importance in the process of demonstrating compliance, and its preparation is of focal importance. The content and complexity are determined by various factors, especially the classification, intended use, type of a device, specific properties of the product, method of production, etc.

Participants get familiar with the requirements relating to medical devices and the current legislation, as well as with the requirements for the conformity of medical devices. Based on practical examples, the participants get to know the tools for identifying the need for compliance of a device with harmonized standards, which directly affects the structure and content of the technical documentation. Based on the acquired knowledge and the consideration of practical examples, the participants prepare a short study – a draft technical documentation for a medical device.

Content

  • Basic overview of MDR requirements relating to technical documentation
  • Supporting documents, guidelines (MEDDEV, GHTF and similar)
  • Structure of a medical device technical documentation
  • Classification of medical devices
  • Risk management (EN ISO 14971)

SIQ: Online-Workshop: Requirements of Regulation (EU) 2017/746 on In Vitro Diagnostic Medical Devices @ ONLINE
Mrz 14 um 09:00 – 12:15

This workshop will be in English and is part of our new academy cooperation with the Slowenian notified body SIQ!

About the training

What are in vitro diagnostic (IVD) medical devices?

IVD medical devices are tests used on biological samples (such as tissue, blood, or urine) to determine a person’s health. There is a very wide range of IVD medical devices, from pregnancy self-testing aids, blood glucose meters to HIV tests, blood group tests and various types of cancer tests. Unlike medical devices or IVD pharmaceuticals, medical devices never come into contact with a person and do not treat patients but provide information about the functioning of the body. IVD medical devices do not cause direct harm, but they pose a very high risk if their use leads to misdiagnosis. A detailed definition of IVD medical devices is given in Regulation (EU) 2017/746, Article 2.

The IVDR replaced the IVDD (In Vitro Diagnostic Medical Devices Directive 98/79/EC) on 26 May 2022 and applies in all EU Member States and EFTA countries. This means that economic operators wishing to obtain the CE marking for their products or to market their products in Europe have to comply with a new set of stricter, more demanding and more complex requirements with which their products must comply. With the IVDR, the European Commission aims in particular to create a robust, transparent, sustainable and internationally recognised regulatory framework that will improve the clinical safety, quality and reliability of IVD medical devices and ensure fair market access for manufacturers, healthcare professionals and end-users.

This means that economic operators wishing to receive the CE mark for their products or to market their products in Europe will encounter a new set of requirements that are generally stricter, more demanding, more complex, and time-consuming than those currently required to comply with. With the IVDR, the European Commission wants to create a solid, transparent, sustainable, and internationally recognized regulatory framework that will improve the clinical safety, quality and reliability of IVD medical devices and ensure fair market access for manufacturers, healthcare professionals and end-users.

At the seminar, we will present the new requirements of Regulation (EU) 2017/746 which are important for manufacturers, authorized representatives, importers and distributors of in vitro diagnostic medical devices in the European Union, and for professionals involved in quality management systems, including IVD medical devices.

Content

  • Overview of Regulation (EU) 2017/746 and definitions
  • Obligations of economic operators
  • Classification and conformity assessment
  • Safety and efficacy requirements (Annex I – GSPR)
  • Requirements for technical documentation
  • Unique Identification System (UDI) and EUDAMED
  • Post-market surveillance and vigilance

Mrz 21 um 09:00 – 15:00

This workshop will be in English and is part of our new academy cooperation with the Slowenian notified body SIQ!

About the training

The safety of medical devices is largely based on the processes by which these devices are manufactured. It is therefore essential to be able to identify and manage the risks associated with these processes, as required by the latest edition of EN ISO 13485:2016. It sounds simple, but the following questions soon arise:

  • What is a process risk anyway?
  • Which processes need to be addressed from a risk perspective and when?
  • What is the basis for risk treatment and how is it carried out?
  • How much does experience count in product risk assessment – is the methodology transferable?
  • Which guidelines (standards) can be relied opon?
  • How to maintain effective process risk management in medical device manufacturing?

Content

  • Documents – the origin of the requirement and basic concepts
  • Standards and editions addressing process risk management, types of risks
  • Requirements for manufacturers – direct and indirect
  • Guidance for risk-based QMS
  • Introduction of the Risk-Based Approach
  • Product and process risks
  • ISO 31000 – basic guidance; additions required for medical devices
  • Activities of the organization when introducing the Risk-Based Approach (RBA)
  • Definition of a process and procedures
  • Records and examples
  • Comparison with risk management requirements for medical devices

Rok Hrovatin started assessing the risk of medical devices only a few years before Slovenia’s accession to the EU. The transposition of European directives has established requirements in this area with the Medical Devices Directive (MDD 93/42 / EEC). He gained experience and knowledge as the head of the testing laboratory for medical devices at SIQ, and soon after that also as a leading auditor in the field of medical devices and as a lecturer in this field.

About the training

This training course will present the requirements of ISO 13485:2016 standard (EN) for a quality management system in the manufacture of medical devices (and related services) and the medical device legislation supported by this standard. From this legislation (Regulation EU 2017/745 on Medical Devices), we will address the requirements for the business entities that can be involved in placing medical devices on the market.

The current legislation and the standard require a high level of documentation in this process, and we will look at both the rules for this documentation and the resulting records.

The fundamental aim of the standard and the legislation is to ensure that only safe and effective medical devices are used in the Common European Market and beyond.

This training course will provide you with the knowledge that will help you be aware of your role as a business entity, establish and/or maintain a relevant quality management system, prepare documentation or technical files for medical devices, and master the requirements for relevant records.
