Don’t miss the MDR transition deadline for your borderline device

“Thank God I can use my MDD substance based device until 2028!”

This is a sentence we often hear, but many manufacturers are not aware that this is subject to certain conditions:

  • An application for a conformity assessment procedure should be submitted to a Notified Body by 26 May 2024

  • A contract for a conformity assessment procedure with a notified body must be concluded by 26 September 2024

Only then can the product continue to be placed on the market until 31 December 2028.

So, if you are an affected manufacturer what should you do next?
