On 26 September 2012 two legislative proposals addressing MD and In Vitro were proposed at the European Commission, followed by extensive expert consultations resulting in an agreement stipulated on 5 October 2015 among Member States’ health ministers on the general approach to the medical devices package, leading to the issuing of the new EU-MDR regulations in 2017.
Issued officially on 25 May 2017, the EU MDR 2017/745 introduced new regulations for the medical devices sector, to establish a modern EU legislative framework and ensure better protection of public health and patient safety. Regulation 745/2017 (MDR) concerning medical devices, repealed Directives 90/385 / EEC and 93/42 / EEC, and Regulation 746/2017 (IVDR) related to in-vitro diagnostic devices. The new regulations will apply after a transitional period: on 26 May 2020 for medical devices, and on 26 May 2022 for in-vitro diagnostics.
