Since entry into force of the Medical Device Regulations (MDR – Regulation EU 2017/745 & IVDR – Regulation EU 2017/746) on May 26th, 2017, medical device manufacturers are working hard on establishing evidence for compliance of their legacy devices with the new set of rules. In fact, neither the MDR nor the IVDR provide for “Grandfathering” of legacy devices. In other words, any device on the market will have to undergo conformity assessment under the new ruling latest by May 2024.
For the development of new devices, most manufacturers have already shifted from the regulatory framework of the directives to the new one of the regulations. Understanding of the transition provisions is key to determine the strategic options and set up a roadmap tailored for the individual need of a medical device manufacturer.

For establishing a strategy for transition for legacy devices, manufacturers should do more than working on the clinical data set through their Post Market Surveillance program. Please find additional information in this white paper published in collaboration with BSI.
