Understand the requirements of Medical Device Regulation (MDR)
The European Union’s Medical Devices Regulation (MDR 2017/745/EU) was officially published on 5 May 2017 and came into force on 25 May 2017. It will eventually replace the Medical Device Directive (MDD 93/42/EEC) and Active Implantable Medical Device Directive (AIMD 90/385/EEC). Manufacturers of currently approved medical devices under MDD and AIMD will have a transition time of three years until 26 May 2020 to meet the requirements of the MDR. For certain devices, this transition can be extended until 26 May 2024.
The MDR introduces numerous changes, including shift from pre-approval stage to life-cycle approach. It also incorporates European guidance documents (MEDDEVs) into the regulation and emphasizes the importance of Post-Market Surveillance (PMS), clinical data, clinical evaluation and Post-Market Clinical Follow-up (PMCF). MDR compliance presents many new challenges to medical device manufacturers.
