(EU) 2023/607 – 26 May 2024 Lodge your MDR application for an extended transition time, Get ready for your next surveillance audit! 

With the Regulation (EU) 2023/607, the European Commission wants to address the risk of discontinuity in healthcare services caused by the slow transition from the medical device Directives to the MDR and IVDR.  

In order to benefit from the extended transition timelines and continue placing legacy medical devices on the market, i.e. those who did not undergo significant change in their design or intended purpose[1] as per article 120(3c) of the (EU) 2017/745, the manufacturer shall establish a QMS compliant with the requirement of MDR 10 (9) by May 26 2024.  Practically, as this will be assessed as from the 26th of September 2024 by your MDR NB through their surveillance audit, will your ISO 13485:2016 certificate be sufficient to meet the quality management system requirements of the (EU) 2017/745? 

The MDR introduces additional, stringent requirements that go beyond those outlined in ISO 13485:2016 regarding post market surveillance, market surveillance, vigilance and registration pursuant to Article 120(3e) MDR.
