Regulation on Medical Devices(MDR)

Parliament adopted the Commission proposal on 17 April, allowing the application of the Medical Devices Regulation to be postponed by one year until 26 May 2021.

The primary aim of the new regulation is to ensure better protection of public health and patient safety. Generally speaking, the new rules are based around an increased focus on clinical performance, better traceability of medical devices and more transparency for patients. For industry actors, however, this means tighter restrictions will be imposed on medical devices entering the European market. Manufacturers, importers and distributors could find that the new rules place their medical devices in a higher risk category than before. As a result, not only new products but also existing ones may need to comply with more stringent requirements – including stricter demands in terms of clinical evidence – in order to qualify for marketing authorization. In many cases, this could entail re-certification.
