European Medical Device Regulation (EU-MDR) | Deloitte Netherlands


European Medical Device Regulation (EU-MDR)

EU-MDR and CE marking requires dedicated and specialised regulatory knowledge and practical experience

We provide a wide range of strategic and hands-on quality and regulatory support services in Device Lifecycle Support, Quality and Regulatory Automation and Training.

Your challenge

The process of obtaining CE marking for medical devices can be long and complex. There is no one-size-fits-all-solution for the implementation of the medical device regulations. Endless variations exist between device types, manufacturers and supply chain process interactions.

Dedicated regulatory knowledge and practical experience are essential to overcome the regulatory hurdles faced by manufacturers and to design and implement the best possible solution for a device and the applicable lifecycle processes.

We assist manufacturers of medical devices with a wide range of quality and regulatory (Q&R) support services throughout the entire device lifecycle.

We have the right expertise for defining optimal strategies for placing and maintaining medical devices on the EU market.
We are specialised in Quality and Regulatory Compliance for Medical Devices in particular Regulation (EU) 2017/745 (EU-MDR). We assist manufacturers and other economic operators through compliance readiness and maturity assessments and by delivering compliance remediation and transformation projects.

Our global network accelerates the delivery of our Q&R services world-wide.
