In the EU, Medical Devices are regulated by two EU Directives (90/385/EEC, 93/42/ EEC) whereas in-vitro diagnostics are regulated by an independent directive. This will change in the near future. With the publication of the new Medical Devices Regulation (MDR) in the Official Journal of the European Union, a transition period has started which will end in May 2020. The MDR will supersede the two directives regarding the active implantable Medical Devices (AiMDD) and all other Medical Devices (MDD). The changes concern all classes of Medical Devices and will lead to distinct, detailed and extensive requirements. They will also apply to the Medical Device elements of Combination Products.
  • What do manufacturers of Medical Devices/Combination Products have to expect in the near future?
  • What are the crucial changes?
  • What has to be considered for implementation?
  • What should be done already now?
These questions will be clarified during the webinar.
