About The Webinar

The extension of the EU MDR deadlines from the EU Commission was received positively by the medical device industry. The extension will impact manufacturers’ preparedness towards clinical documentation, certification, and workload for notified bodies as they get closer to the extension deadlines.

The EU Commission’s MDR transitional deadlines are:

  • Class III custom made implantable devices – May 26, 2026
  • Higher Risk Class III and IIb devices – December 31, 2027
  • Lower Risk Class IIa and I devices – December 31, 2028

It is vital that medical device manufacturers use the extension as an opportunity and utilize this valuable time to get their certification processes within MDR regulations in order.
