The new EU Medical Device Regulation (MDR) is the single largest change to medical device regulations in Europe since the 1993 introduction of CE Marking. As grandfathering of existing products is not permitted, the new regulations affect all medical devices sold throughout Europe. There is a temptation for medical device companies to think that the transition arrangements through 1Q20 under MDR leave a considerable amount of time to ensure compliance. Research predicts that companies that do not address MDR early will suffer from potential bottlenecks among Notified Bodies for certification completion and capacity shortages by compliance professionals in the preparatory process. If you have not started to plan for the transition, now is the time to act. This presentation will take you through the main regulation changes and outline key requirements affecting manufacturers moving forward.
