The new MDR has significantly updated the requirements for medical devices placed on the European market. It has introduced new requirements for manufacturers to comply with to achieve CE marking before placing their products on the European market. Some of the principal changes are in the areas of the role of economic operators, vigilance and post-market surveillance, increased requirements for clinical evidence, and expansion of the scope of products covered under the regulation when compared with the previous directives. This whitepaper provides an overview of the legislative changes, with a focus on the requirements for products that are typically known as drug-device combination products.
The drug-device whitepaper looks at issues such as:
- the regulatory framework for devices
- what is a drug-device product and how are they defined as such?
- how are they regulated
- how does MDR change the requirements for drug-device products?
- combination products regulated as medical devices
The brief whitepaper also provides a handy drug-device checklist.
