Regulations are constantly changing which is challenging for many organizations. Currently there is a lot of confusion due to the new MDR in Europe. Medical device manufacturers are required to meet the new European Medical Devices Directive (MDD 93/42/EEC) and have limited time left to comply.
Currently we are therefore focusing on services such as a gap analysis and training to help you get ready.

When is the date of application for the MDR?
Europe’s Medical Device Regulation (EU) 2017/745 goes into effect in May 2021 and as a manufacturer, authorized representative, distributor or importer you will need to get ready and comply. Depending on the expiration of your current certifications you might run the risk of not having market access. Start your project NOW to avoid any gaps in certifications.
My MDD certificate is still valid and I have plenty of time, right?

What about the IVDR?
There is even more pressure for our IVDR Manufacturers. There is only one year left until May 2022 to comply with the changed IVDR Regulation (EU) 2017/. All devices with IVDD certificates can no longer be sold or put into service. There are not many Notified Bodies yet with designations. Therefore it is imperative for IVD manufacturers to prepare right now.
