Learn from the experts!

Qarad provides classroom, web-based or on-site training sessions according to your needs.

Whether you want to know more about the content of a certain directive or regulation, how to approach risk management, or how to establish an efficient and compliant product development process, Qarad teaches you how to do so.

Review and composition of Technical Documentation

Without your professional and kind services, we would not have had our first CE mark so smoothly.

By having experts review your technical documentation to verify compliance to all the applicable requirements, you facilitate your market introduction. 
Qarad identifies possible gaps so they can be addressed before the Notified Body assessment.

Qarad has assisted hundreds of companies to obtain their CE mark. An experience you can count on!

Review Instructions For Use and labels

Compliant labelling is a must for the Notified Bodies and Competent Authorities and therefore it is a high priority for you! 

Qarad reviews whether all general safety and performance requirements (IVDR/MDR) are fulfilled. 

Label optimization allows manufacturers to save a lot of money by reducing unnecessary translations.

Gap analysis of QMS

Does your Quality Management System match all the requirements as set out in the Directive and/or Regulation?

Qarad has set up countless successful Quality Systems so we are the ideal partner to get you started. Alternatively, we can assess your current system and make a clear gap analysis to structure how to improve your system.

Assistance in Notified Body selection

Notified Bodies must be designated for each particular legislation before being able to audit compliance thereof. 

As manufacturer, it is of utmost importance to know which Notified Body you should reach out to in which situation.

We help you to make a preselection of the available Notified Bodies.

Preparation for conformity assessment by Notified Body

A flawless audit is something we all dream of. 

Our consultants can act as an auditor to assess conformity before the ‘real’ Notified Body audit. By doing a mock audit, you will be well-prepared and could potentially avoid remarks.

Classification products

The Regulations try to explain which type of product belongs to which class. 

However, many products fall in a grey zone and you will need a correct interpretation to assess your product’s class and the related conformity assessment route you need to undertake. 

Qarad’s consultants do this on a day-to-day basis and thanks to our experience and rational reasoning, we offer a classification that will be easily defensible with your Notified Body

Performance studies for IVD

Stressed to test your products? Let us take care of it for you!

Qarad manages your Clinical and Analytical performance studies according to the ISO 20916:2019 standard in close collaboration with Europe’s most renowned evaluations centres. 

Scientific validity reports

IVD-R 2017/746 requires that you prove the scientific validity of your IVD products. This is a very time consuming task. Avoid this by outsourcing your scientific validity reports to our experts.
