Combination Products: Seeking a Notified Body Opinion according to MDR Article 117

Recorded on April 21, 2021

Joseph-Richardson Larbi, Regulatory Affairs Expert – Medical Devices, Celegence

Due to the ever-expanding prevalence and complexity of Drug Device Combination (DDC) products, the EU MDR has put these products under greater focus. Manufacturers of DDCs will now be required to receive Notified Body opinions to ensure the safety and performance of the device element of the combination product. Outlined in Annex 1 of the MDR, the General Safety and Performance Requirements (GSPRs) are required to be met for combination products prior to placing them on the market. The products in scope of this requirement are integral Drug Device Combination products and products in which both the medicinal product and device are to be used exclusively within the given combination. Join this Celegence featured presentation to understand our expert Joseph-Richardson Larbi’s perspective on how to best prepare, interact, and fulfill the requirements for a Notified Body opinion on your organization’s combination product.

This webinar is complimentary.
