The subject "Certification of Medical Devices" will deepen the basic information on legislation related to medical devices - ZP. The lessons are focused on a deeper understanding of the ISO work related to the ZP and, to a large extent, on the certification of the ZP from the point of view of the manufacturer, but also partly from the point of view of medical devices. From the point of view of the necessary procedures and requirements for certification of the ZP, all necessary documents necessary for conformity assessment by the notified body are discussed in the EU and also outside the EU as well as the individual procedures for the creation of such documents.
Learning Outcomes of the Course Unit
The aim of the course is to deepen and update knowledge in the field of management and management system for medical devices. Most of the subject is devoted to the certification and registration of medical devices in the EU and outside the EU according to valid legislation.
Upon completion of the course the student will be familiar with basic concepts in the field of medical technology management, mainly from the point of view of the manufacturer of medical technology. The student will know how to work with European regulations, standards and recommended papers so that all the requirements for certification and registration of medical devices in the EU are met. Part of the subject also deals with requirements for certification and registration of medical devices outside the EU. This subject focuses mainly on the necessary legislation in the field of certification and registration of medical devices.
