MDR: Top Things You Need to Know as a Packaging Engineer


In recent news, the European Commission adopted a proposal to postpone Medical Device Regulation (MDR) by one year to prioritize the fight against COVID-19. The new date for MDR rollout will be May 26, 2021. But with that said, there is still much work to do. Our technical experts are here to help you prepare. Is your sterile barrier packaging labeled properly? Does your packaging meet aseptic presentation standards? Have you properly evaluated the risks of your packaging?

During this free 45-minute webinar, Technical Fellow Geoff Pavey and Principal Technical Services Engineer Tommy Smith will present a practical overview of MDR and how it applies to the packaging process. By breaking down the various components of MDR, the team will discuss the differences between the Medical Device Directive (MDD) and MDR, and how MDR and ISO 11607 integrate.  

In this 45-minute webinar, you’ll learn about:

  • A high-level overview of the changes in MDR, compared to MDD
  • How to practically apply these changes in your packaging process
  • Key MDR points and discussion topics the industry is talking about
