Benefit from our Experience and be Successful in the European Market
"Even years after the new European Regulation for Medical Devices (EU) 2017/745 (MDR) such as the respective regulation for In Vitro Diagnostics (EU) 2017/746 (IVDR) came into force, manufacturers and distributors are still struggeling to comply with the new requirements resulting from the switch from the respective guidelines to the new regulatory framenwork. In principle, all new medical devices and IVDs placed on the European market after the effective date of May 26, 2021 must comply with the requirements of the MDR repectively the IVDR.
However, for various reasons, the transition periods have been extended several times to ensure the supply of the European market with urgently needed devices and IVDs. Nevertheless manufacturers should no longer hesitate to deal with the requirements of new regulations in order to be able to continue certification of their products and to allow enough time to make any necessary product adjustments.
