A frustrating development in the quality field is yet another regulation. At first glance, MDR 2017, the EU’s medical device regulation, can seem like the worst of the worst. Marcia Weeden discusses the evolution of standards and how MDR’s requirements are the epitome of a robust quality and risk management system utilizing the best of quality engineering tools.
