MDR Technical Documentation (TD) Checklist

To help you to compile a complete TD which supports an efficient and timely assessment, TÜV SÜD Medical Health Services created a guidance document: Summary of MDR TD.


  • It is a proposal for your summary of TD which can be directly completed by your company.
  • It refers to the documents/records required by MDR annex II and III, so you won't have to do unnecessary work.
  • It gives a clear and structured oversight regarding the medical device description for 3rd parties.
  • This supports an efficient and timely assessment of your submitted TD at TÜV SÜD premises.

However, if this document or parts thereof is not followed, it will still be possible to conduct a successful assessment of the TD. Please do not hesitate to contact your personal CARE if you have any questions.
