EU MDR Compliance: A Complete Guide

Understanding and Complying with the EU Medical Device Regulation 

The European Union (EU) Medical Device Regulation (MDR) (2017/745) is a regulatory framework that governs the production and distribution of medical devices in the EU. It holds medical device manufacturers to strict safety standards regarding the use of harmful substances in their devices. The regulation replaced the EU Medical Devices Directive (MDD) (93/42/EEC) and the Active Implantable Medical Devices Directive (AIMDD) (90/385/EEC).  

Enacted in May 2021, the MDR is still in its implementation phase with various deadlines for distinct types of devices. It's critical for manufacturers and distributors of medical devices to understand the regulation, how their devices are classified, and how to achieve compliance before the MDD and AIMDD are phased out and the MDR is fully enforced.
