Economic Operators under EU MDR
A Virtual Event
September 02, 2020

One of the most challenging aspects of EU MDR are the economic operator requirements.  Identifying internal or external economic operators, understanding roles and responsibilities, guaranteeing the appropriate degree of independent oversight, and establishing the appropriate quality and other agreements and procedures are complex and confusing.

Join MedTech Intelligence for a roundtable discussion in which experts from industry, notified bodies, and consulting firms have identified the challenges and established procedures for managing them. Add to the discussion by submitting your own questions in advance or during the webinar.

Topics of Discussion:

Why the EU MDR emphasis on economic operators?

Who are the economic operators and what are their respective responsibilities?

The challenges of internal economic operators

When distributors assume a manufacturer’s role
