Certification of Medical Devices | Regulation (EU) 2017/745

At MTIC InterCert, we take pride in offering comprehensive and efficient Medical Device Certification Services. Our dedicated team of experts is committed to guiding you through the complexities of complying with the European Medical Device Regulations (MDR). With extensive knowledge and experience, we're here to ensure that your medical devices meet the necessary standards for market access in the European Union.

Even several years after the introduction of the new European Medical Device Regulations (EU) 2017/745 (MDR), manufacturers and distributors continue to face challenges in adapting to the updated requirements as they transition from previous guidelines to the new regulatory framework.

In essence, all new medical devices introduced to the European market after May 26, 2024, must comply with the provisions of the MDR.

Our experts at MTIC InterCert have conducted comprehensive assessments of the changes within the MDR. We have a global presence and are readily available in your region. As a Notified Body designated for conducting conformity assessments under the MDR, we are fully prepared to evaluate your quality management system and review your technical documentation.

As a member of the NB Team, MTIC participates in the technical working tables and is always updated on regulatory developments and guidelines applicable to medical devices.

MDR Transition Period Extended

On March 15, 2023, the European Parliament approved a proposal aimed at alleviating the challenges faced by medical device manufacturers. With this latest extension of the Medical Devices Regulation EU 2017/745, manufacturers now have the option to apply for an extension of the transition period for their products.

This new regulation is expected to come into effect shortly upon publication in the European Journal. Manufacturers will have the opportunity for the following extended transition periods:

  • May 26, 2026, for custom-made medical devices and Class III devices.
  • December 31, 2027, for higher-risk non-exempted Class IIb implants and Class III devices.
  • December 31, 2028, for low-risk medical devices.

Our services focus on the transition period and the timeline for compliance with MDR 2017/745. Our experts can assist you in meeting deadlines and addressing all issues relevant to maintaining access for your Active and/or Non-active medical devices to European markets.

It's important to note that manufacturers must demonstrate that they have already taken steps to transition to the new regulations to be eligible for the extension. We offer our support to all manufacturers seeking a professional and reliable Notified Body to address the challenges posed by the MDR. Please feel free to reach out to us.
