Medical Devices Regulation

  • 21 April 2020
  • 2017/745, medical devices, regulation,


On 3 April 2020, the European Commission has adopted a proposal, to postpone by one year the date of application of the Medical Devices Regulation to allow Member States, health institutions and economic operators to prioritise the fight against the coronavirus pandemic.

This proposal therefore postpones, for exceptional reasons in the current context, the application of the Regulation by one year – until 26 May 2021.

European Commission – Press release can be reached here.

The European institutions – the European Parliament and Council of Ministers – are likely to have dealt with the request by May 2020.
