  • Why Work With NSF

The Medical Device Regulation (EU MDR) 2017/745 introduced major changes for manufacturers placing devices on the European market. To obtain a CE mark and access to the EU market, understanding and complying with the MDR is a must.

NSF International provides tools and solutions to ensure compliance with the EU MDR. We do this through a range of consulting services, including regulatory and clinical strategy planning, quality audits, training courses and the development of regulatory submissions.


We provide training and education, regulatory and clinical support, and quality systems implementation and auditing services to help you navigate significant EU MDR changes. These include device classification, new and increased obligations for economic operators, requirements for technical documentation, and clinical evidence.
