Marysa Mezzetti - Risk Documentation and MDR Chasing Compliance: The Global Regulatory Podcast

    • Biowissenschaften

Have you considered the impacts of the Medical Device Regulation (MDR) on your current risk documentation and management strategies? You may be wondering, what devices can be grouped together? Should you group your devices at all? How will these changes impact your Clinical Evaluation Report? In this episode of Chasing Compliance, Marysa Mezzetti, a Manager on the Medical Device team, and Jamie discuss how risk management and documentation practices must be considered for each device individually, implications of device lifetime, life cycle, and safety and performance objectives, and changes in the risk documentation language. While there is no clearly defined path forward for manufacturers, this episode provides some guiding principles that will help develop a sound MDR remediation strategy. Marysa ends their conversation with some tips and best practices regarding MDR-related changes to risk documentation. As always, Jamie wraps things up with Favorite  Friday.
