On 24 April 2020, an amendment to the EU Medical Devices Law (MDR) (Amending Regulation) was released by the EU legislator postponing the implementation of the EU MDR requirements by one year, until 26 May 2021. The medical devices industry awaited the adoption of the proposal of the European Commission to postpone the implementation of essential sections of the new EU MDR by one year. This postponement would bring much-needed relief to the medical device industry and the EU Member States for whom the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic poses an immense burden.

As a reason for this delay, the European Commission said it wanted to ease the pressure from competent authorities, notified bodies, manufacturers and other authorities to focus on the current COVID-19 crisis rather than on the MDR’s last minute preparations.

What It Means to Clinical Trials, Manufacturers & Notified Bodies

Several regulatory authorities have provided guidelines for clinical trials (FDA, MHRA, EMA) on how to move to remote monitoring during COVID-19. Even if the MDR is delayed, it is now time to get prepared and plan to hit the ground running with the collection of clinical data.

Affects of COVID-19 on Medical Device Manufacturers

COVID-19 affects device manufacturers and suppliers significantly. Device manufacturers are likely to see a drop in sales for appliances primarily used in elective and surgical procedures. They are reassessing marketing and revenue forecasts and have to consider how safety measures will impact production lines, as well as any effect on resource allocation and funding of remediation programs for MDR.

Shifting the MDR date of application gives Notified Bodies an opportunity to continue being designated under the new regulation and ready to accept applications from manufacturers. Medical device manufacturers should expect Notified Body availability and reviews to be further delayed by the COVID-19 situation.

The COVID-19 pandemic affects clinical trials, production, and supply chains, as well as Notified Body readiness and other regulatory concerns. However, the lesson is that the medical device industry must still be EU MDR compliant and should not lose its focus. So how will this additional year allow the medical industry to prepare for a completely planned and effective implementation of the MDR? Make sure you join our webinar to find out.
