The European Union’s (EU) Medical Device Regulation (MDR) EU 2017/745 has come into force. The aim is to enhance European patient safety and device traceability and transparency.
The MDR is a new law that repeals the Medical Device Directive (MDD) and Active Implantable Medical Devices (AIMD) Directive. It applies to all manufacturers, importers and distributors that want to sell medical devices in the EU.
Although the regulation has changed, our ability to provide high-quality support and manage the marking process remains the same.
Our Notified Bodies team has worked hard to prepare for the MDR designation. SGS Belgium NV shall be designated an MDR Notified Body by the European Commission (EC) and Federal Agency for Medicines and Health Products (FAMHP), the Belgian competent authority, before the end of 2021.
With our existing approvals under the UK Conformity Assessed (UKCA) scheme, we will soon be one of a few regulatory bodies that can provide medical device certification services across all of Europe, including the UK and Northern Ireland.
