The Medical Devices Directive (MDD) is quickly reaching obsolescence and will be replaced by the Medical Device Regulation (MDR) starting May 20, 2020. Transition is underway in the EU, and all companies with CE certificates will be required to comply with the new regulation by the end of May 2024 or sooner, depending upon certificate expiry.

Under MDR, the requirements for quality management systems have changed. The transition from MDD will affect organizations certified to ISO 13485:2016 Medical Devices – Quality management systems. Understanding the new requirements, and which requirements ISO 13485:2016 fully cover, partially cover and do not cover will help medical device manufacturers to comply with MDR.
