After the announcement of medical device regulation (MDR)and a deadline extension, the EU market is bracing for the new requirements. Now facing the possibility of another extension, industry doesn’t even know if or when it must comply.

MDR by the numbers now:
8,120—the number of applications.
1,990—the number of certificates issued.
7000—the number of certificates that may be issued in total by May 2024.
22,793—the number of certificates under medical device directives (MDD) set to expire by May 2024.
425,000—the number of devices under said MDD certificates that will be unavailable after May 2024 without drastic and immediate action.

This webinar looks at MDR implementation by the cold, hard, numbers. The webinar presents the results of research on recent MDCG guidance, industry and Notified Body surveys, and personal interviews with stakeholders regarding their first-hand experiences with implementation.
