… and ensure that the European MedTech industry is well positioned for the age of digitalization and global competition.

Our Mission

We are a nonprofit organization with stakeholders from the MedTech industry and convinced, that an open source data model for content of the technical documentation for medical devices can accelerate digitalization and innovation in our industry. Due to the high complexity of content and variety of involved disciplines, such a data model can only be developed by the MedTech community for the MedTech community: That is what we do.

Our goals: A clear regulatory language and foundation for an efficient digitalization – for medical device manufacturers, notified bodies and other stakeholders. This is our contribution to better patient care in Europe.

Status quo

The pace of innovation in Europe has slowed massively. New medical devices are approved more quickly in the USA and other countries.


Creation and ongoing maintenance of technical documentation files in the post-market phase are complex and time consuming.


Digitalized regulatory lifecycle processes, technical documentation and submission procedures can immensely increase efficiency.


A unified data model supports the standardization of processes, content, data exchange and is the foundation for digitalization.
