With just a couple of weeks to go in 2019, the new year is approaching fast, and with it comes the implementation of the European Union Medical Device Regulation (EU MDR). Consisting of complex and sweeping changes, the new regulations, guidelines and enforcements are more stringent than its predecessor, the Medical Devices Directive (MDD). Released in 2017, medical device manufacturers were given a three-year transitionary period – with the new regulation taking effect May 26, 2020.
Now that the European Union is moving toward e-labeling for medical devices, companies like yours are able to reduce the cost of delivering pertinent product and safety information. Digital delivery of label information ensures that product users always have up-to-date product information, which can even be delivered via video.
