Course Overview

Many medical device developers and manufacturers rely heavily on the competence of their staff to achieve their business goals. Like many companies, particularly in the start-up phase, it can be a daunting task to know where to start with documenting the necessary evidence to demonstrate that competence to third parties such as investors and notified or approved bodies.

Under the MDR / IVDR, the requirement to have a Person Responsible for Regulatory Compliance brings the need to demonstrate competence into even sharper focus.

This webinar has been developed to help you understand the ‘big picture’ of competence management from selection of the right competencies for success to maintenance of collective organisational knowledge.

This course is part of our Regulatory Affairs Training course collection, which features updates on the latest regulations to registration procedures and strategies.
