EU MDR Impact on Medical Device Labeling

40 minute presentation recording.

Medical device manufacturers placing products in Europe marketplace have less than a year to comply with the European Medical Device Regulation. For many manufacturers, there is still some uncertainty as to what exactly the impact is on medical device labeling. Preparing for compliance is a significant undertaking for regulatory, labeling and packaging professionals. Key provisions within the regulation specific to labeling include expanded requirements and initiatives towards increased transparency and traceability. It is important to note that these requirements will be rigorously enforced as of May 2020. Regulatory, labeling and packaging teams must collaborate and begin to implement these new provisions as soon as possible.

This webinar will explore approaches for implementation of new, or soon to be revised labeling standards that impact current labeling practices.

  • New graphical symbols and how to implement in labeling
  • Patient implant card
  • Label remediation planning
  • Importance of timing and communication
  • Balancing new requirements with other global label mandates


Participants that will find this webinar most beneficial will be those involved in medical device companies. Job titles of attendees that will be most applicable for this session will be:

  • Labeling
  • eLabeling
