The European Medical Devices Regulation (MDR), was published in the Official Journal of the European Union on May 5, 2017. Published as Regulation (EU) 2017/745, it covers medical devices and active implantable medical devices. Its requirements refer to the European Commission, as well as medical device manufacturers, notified bodies and member state competent authorities. The new regulation is almost three times as long as and much stricter than the previous Medical Device Directive (MDD). The three-year transition period for all economic operators involved in medical devices in Europe began on May 25, 2017.
