Medical device manufacturers must recertify their devices under the Medical Device Regulation (MDR) by May 26, 2020. Find out what you need to do to ensure your devices are recertified by the compliance deadline.
The MDR increases premarket conformity requirements. Manufacturers will need to implement a system process to continuously aggregate and analyze clinical data that verifies a device's safety and efficacy.
Risk management with MDR will require ongoing, systematic processes for analysis through a device's life cycle, including regular updates and identifying the risks of potential hazards and device misuse.
The European Database for Medical Devices (EUDAMED) will monitor device data for pre- and postmarket surveillance. Manufacturers need to report all device-related incidents, accidents and deaths in EUDAMED.
The new MDR changes some classifications, raising some devices to a higher risk category based on their purpose, i.e., devices that incorporate nanotechnology, orthopedic implants, surgical meshes and some software.
