CE Marking - What is the Medical Device Regulation (MDR)

The Medical Device Regulation (MDR) is a new regulation governing the safety of medical devices available in the European Union (EU).

Work on the new MDR began in 2012 following the Poly Implant Prothèse (PIP) breast implants scandal.

The new Medical Device Regulation was published on 5 May 2017 by the Official Journal of the European Union. This new regulation – known as (EU) 2017/745 – replaces and repeals both the existing Medical Device Directive (MDD) 93/42/EEC and Active Implantable Medical Devices (AIMD) Directive 90/385/EEC.

Medical Device Regulation - Are you prepared for the changes?

The European Union (EU) regulatory framework for medical devices consists of the Medical Device Directive (MDD) 93/42/EEC and Active Implantable Medical Devices (AIMD) Directive 90/385/EEC.

In the interest of simplification, both directives are combined under the MDR, which is introduced as a regulation instead of a directive, following a proposed revision by the European Commission on 26 September 2012.

A regulation was deemed the appropriate legal instrument as it imposes clear and detailed rules which do not give room for different interpretations by member states.
