Benefit from our Experience and be Successful in the European Market
Manufacturers and distributors of medical devices usually are on top of things when it comes to the certification and market approval of their products. Since 1993, this has been regulated by the requirements of the MDD. In 2017, the EU Commission adopted the European Medical Devices Regulation 2017/745 with an initial three-year transition period, which was then extended to four years, making the date of application May 26, 2021.
All medical devices that are newly placed on the market in the EU after the date of application must comply with the requirements of the MDR. Products that are already certified can be placed on the market until the end of the validity of their certificates, but no later than May 26, 2024, provided certain transitional provisions are met.
Our experts at TÜV Rheinland have thoroughly studied the changes in the MDR and are located in your region, around the world. As a Notified Body designated to perform conformity assessments under the MDR, we audit your quality management system and review your technical documentation.
Deadlines and Transitional Provisions
This transition period applies only if
- the medical devices continue to meet the requirements of the medical device directives and if surveillance by the current Notified Body is still ensured,
- additional requirements of the MDR are met as well, including requirements for the registration of market players and products, for post-market surveillance of the products and for the reporting of adverse events, and
- no significant changes have been made to the design or to the intended use of the products.
