We are talking a lot of time about how to be MDR certified and I provide you with some tips etc… In this episode of the Podcast, I wanted to interview someone that succeeded at EU MDR certification so we can get some story and secrets about what went well and what were some of the problems.

Shokoufeh Khodabandeh from Straumann in Switzerland is the EU MDR implementation lead and the team succeeded and received their EU MDR certificate. Shokoufeh will explain to us how they have done:

  • How long did the project last?
  • What are some of the issues that happened?
  • What was the relation with the Notified Body?
  • How was structured the team?
  • What are some things that they would have done differently if they should restart?

This will be a really exciting episode as we get behind the curtain of a company that succeeded and they will explain how they have done it. I hope this will be helping other companies.
