New EU Regulations



Since May 26, 2021 a new regulation regarding Medical Devices (MD) replaces two directives dating from the 90s. The (EU) 2017/745 regulation replaces directives.

and from May 26, 2022 the Regulation (EU) 2017/746 regarding in vitro diagnostic medical devices will replace the directive :

Gradually CE marking certificates established under these directives will become invalid and medical device manufacturers must update their technical documentation and possibly obtain a new CE marking certificate from the newly designated Notified Bodies.

Notified Bodies (NB)

Safety rules have tightened considerably, more and more of these products must now be assessed by Notified Bodies. But these institutions are also put to the test by European authorities, the NBs and their experts must demonstrate the absence of conflict of interest and must respect rigorous processes. The consequence is a sharp decrease in the evaluation capacities of NBs, their number has strongly reduced from around 80 in 2014 to 24 today and the amount of work required for these evaluations has increased significantly.

It is highly likely that only the best-prepared manufacturers will pass this major regulatory change, without a hitch.
