Be confident of medical device market approval
Active implantable medical devices (AIMD) include a wide range of devices, including pacemakers, defibrillators, infusion pumps, ventricular assist systems and devices, cochlear implants and neurostimulators. Because AIMDs are designed to remain in direct contact with the body for extended periods, they are subject to rigorous standards and requirements to protect the health and safety of patients.
From 26 May 2021, the EU Medical Device Regulation, (MDR (EU) 2017/745) has replaced the EU Directive on Active Implantable Medical Devices (90/385/EEC). Devices holding a certificate from a European Notified Body under the Active Implantable Medical Devices Directive (90/385/EEC) have an additional grace period and may continue to be placed on the market until 26 May 2024 if the manufacturer fulfil the specific prerequisite requirements drawn in the MDR.
