Medical Devices Regulation: The New Rules

The European Parliament adopted proposals for two new EU Regulations on medical devices on 5 April 2017 – one for medical devices and the other for in vitro diagnostic medical devices. These entered into force on 25 May 2017, and will fully apply from 26 May 2020 and 2022, respectively.
