The EU Commission is currently discussing the entry into force of the MDR. This was planned for 26 May 2020, but in view of the current situation regarding COVID-19 and the resulting shift in priorities among manufacturers of medical devices, an application to postpone this date by one year is now to be submitted by the end of April. As always, the goal is to ensure the greatest possible patient health and safety.

Among other things, this is intended to ensure that manufacturers of medical devices can now concentrate fully on more urgent matters, such as the development and production of test kits, and postpone the switch to the requirements of the MDR for the time being.
