Medical technology

Writing technical documentation requires as much professionalism as the development of medical products itself. Operating instructions, declarations of conformity and technical data must always be up-to-date and of high quality, particularly in the medical sector. Medical device manufacturers, dealers and suppliers are repeatedly faced with new and complex challenges due to new demands placed on product documentation.

On 25 May 2017, the new Medical Device Regulation (MDR 2017/745) came into force and following a transitional period of four years, application of the regulation is mandatory from 26 May 2021. It replaces the Medical Device Directive (MDD, 93/42/EC) and the Directive on Active Implantable Medical Devices (AIMD 90/385/EC).

The new MDR places comprehensive demands on medical device manufacturers and operators and has a wider scope of application. The Medical Device Regulation contains changes on conformity assessments and the CE marking associated with it. Therefore manufacturers have to reassess their products with regards to conformity with the new EU regulation. The responsibility for the CE marking and the declaration of conformity always lies with the entity that places a particular product on the market. Therefore, the operator can often become the manufacturer from a legal point of view thanks to conversions, boosts to performance or self-determined combination of production facilities.

We support you in fulfilling the requirements associated with CE marking and the new Medical Device Regulation. We will carry out individual steps for you or handle the entire process.

We offer the following services:

  • Checking of your user manuals and operating instructions for completeness (MDR CHECK)
  • Checking whether all directives and harmonised norms have been applied for your product
  • Checking the software documentation and risk assessment
  • Checking and translation of the GUI (graphical user interface) and retranslation of your documents

Consumer electronics and electrical technology

The technology used in products is becoming ever more sophisticated. Therefore, it is paramount that the associated technical documentation is always up-to-date and complies with the respective requirements. Operating, assembly and maintenance instructions must be appropriate for the target group, must be legally compliant, of the highest quality and must be checked consistently for currency. In addition, manufacturers and distributors are responsible for CE marking and the declaration of conformity of their products.

We will support you in providing professional and current accompanying product documentation. Our trained editors will create and review your documents in accordance with stipulated guidelines and norms. Based on the client’s request, our long-time experts will carry out individual steps or entire processes for you.
