The EU Commission is proposing to the European Parliament that the new EU MDR be postponed by one year in order to allow the industry and relevant authorities to concentrate on priorities related to the Covid19 pandemic.
This information was published via a video by Mario Gabrielli Cossellu, Policy and Legal Officer at European Commission on March 25th 2020.
"The Commission is working on a proposal to postpone the entry into force of the new Medical Devices Regulation for 1 year. We are working hard to submit this proposal early April and we call on Parliament and on Council to adopt it quickly as the deadline for entry into force is at the end of May. This will relieve pressure from national authorities and industry and it will allow them to focus fully on urgent priorities related to the coronavirus crisis".
