  • The impact of the MDR and IVDR on the product life cycle.

    As we approach the date of application of the MDR next year, medical device manufacturers are focused on ensuring that they get their CE certificates updated and they are able to continue to sell devices into the EU, but the journey isn’t going to stop there. However, the changes in the new regulations are not just about conformity of the product now, and manufacturers need to be thinking beyond simply completing their transition from MDD to MDR.

    ‘Fake news’ isn’t even news any more. Donald Trump is right in one way: as online ‘news’ sites proliferate daily, and the regulations lag behind the times, fake news is a reality.
