The EU’s New Regulatory Framework for Medical Devices

MedTech Europe’s International Affairs Manager, Diana Kanecka, recently addressed an MTAA hosted, EU Medical Device Regulation event in Sydney.

Diana discussed the slow and challenging transition to the new regulatory framework for medical devices in the European Union.

As of June 2019, only two notified bodies, BSI UK and Germany’s TÜV SÜD, have been designated to the new EU MDR. A number of important implementation milestones are yet to be met and time is running out.
