Unlocking Insights: The Impact of New Medical Device EU Regulation (MDR)

Veristat and TOPRA recently hosted an informative webinar on the topic of the impact of new EU regulations on the development of medical devices and drug combination products. The European Commission's adoption of Regulation (EU) 2017/745, known as the Medical Devices Regulation (MDR), has significantly changed manufacturers' market access process. Additionally, the webinar delved into the updated requirements for Drug-Device Combination Products under the MDR, including timeline changes, transition periods, and Article 117 on DDCs.

During the webinar, Veristat's regulatory experts discussed the transition from the Medical Devices Directive to the Medical Devices Regulation, emphasizing the differences in requirements and procedures for various types of Drug-Device Combination Products.

Topics covered included:

  • An overview of the changes.
  • Types of DDC products.
  • Requirements for non-integral and integral DDCs.
  • Clinical investigations with DDCs.
