Commission working on proposal to postpone MDR application date for one year

On 25th March 2020, the European Commission announced that is working on a proposal to postpone the date of application for the Medical Device Regulation (MDR 2017/745) for one year. The Commission will submit this proposal in early April for the Parliament and the Council to adopt it quickly as the date of application is the end of May. This decision was made to relieve pressure from national authorities, notified bodies, manufacturers and other actors and will allow them to focus fully on the urgent priorities related to the coronavirus crisis.
