Software Life Cycle: How do I meet the Regulatory Requirements?

Workshop on September 11, 2019 in Frankfurt

Register for the event »

The new EU Medical Device Regulation (EU MDR) requires manufacturers to develop and manufacture software according to the “principles of development life cycle”. The relevant standard in this context is the IEC 62304, which is currently under revision. Moreover, the IEC 82304-1 standard completes the applicability by, among other things, extending its focus to the life cycle of health software and stand-alone software (medical apps).

Focus on Implementation of Regulatory Requirements

Our speakers are experts in the fields of legal and norm-compliant development and production of medical software. In this practice-oriented workshop, they will discuss with you the implementation of the repective standards.

A maximum of 40 participants are admitted to enable sufficient discussion opportunities and direct contact with our experts. Register today!


Workshop language will be German. A German program is available, too.
