Introduction

The EU Medical Device Regulation (MDR) 2017/745 was published on 5th May 2017,and it has replaced the EU Medical Device Directive (MDD 93/42/EEC) and the EU Active Implantable Medical Device Directive (AIMDD 90/385/EEC). It came into force on the 25th May 2017, and all the related and relevant manufacturers have three years transition period to comply with the EU MDR. However, the European Parliament has adopted and supported the European Commission’s proposal to postpone the effective compliance and application of the EU MDR to 26th May 2021 due to the Covid-19 outbreak.

The 175-page document outlined regulatory requirements to the economic operators (a manufacturer, an authorized representative, an importer and/or a distributor) as well as the notified bodies. The EU MDR also outlined the Rules (with added Rules compared to the previous EU Medical Device Directive) for medical device classification purposes. The EU MDR compliance is important and mandatory for all existing economic operators that involved in marketing medical devices in the EU market as well as all economic operators who wish to expand their medical device distribution into the EU market.
