TOPIC:

New European Medical Devices Regulation

 

WHEN & WHERE:

Tuesday 5th May 8:00 - 10:15 @ online Teams meeting (detailed information on how to dial in will follow before the event to registered participants)

 

MORE INFORMATION & SCHEDULE:

The new Medical Device Regulations (2017/745/EU) (MDR), published in May 2017, will replace the existing Medical Devices Directive (93/42/EEC) (MDD) and the Active Implantable Medical Devices Directive (90/385/EEC) (AIMDD). The new rules will fully apply after a transitional period. That period lasts for 3 years after the entry into force of the regulation on medical devices MDR (i.e. until May 2020), and 5 years after the entry into force of the regulation on in vitro diagnostic medical devices IVDR (i.e. until May 2022). However, there might be some delay because of the global COVID-19 crisis.

 

Due to the changes in the medical device legislation in the EU, there’s a lot of things you need to know as a medical device manufacturer. Therefore, this topic will be discussed in Business Finland's Health Tuesday Webinar on 5th May 2020. Business Finland has invited two Finnish medical companies to tell the stories how they have implemented the essential European regulatory requirements. Innokas Medical is one of these companies.
