If you are transitioning from the EU MDD 93/42/EC or 90/385/EEC to the EU MDR 2017/745 or from the IVDD 98/79/EC to the IVDR 2017/745, then you have to be careful with Significant Changes.
In this episode, I’ve asked Martin Witte from TÜV SÜD to give us the point of view of Notified Bodies on Significant changes. When we should consider them, what are the best practices, what to do when we deal with a significant change, and what are the consequences if we are not following the regulation.
So this will be an excellent episode to help you prepare your procedures for significant changes and understand the risks.
