With patient health and safety as a guiding principle, the Commission announced on 25 March 2020 that work on a proposal to postpone the application date of the Medical Devices Regulation (MDR) for one year is ongoing.
The goal is to submit this proposal in early April so the Parliament and Council can adopt it by the end of May, its deadline for entry into force.
This will take the pressure off national authorities, notified bodies, manufacturers and other actors so they can focus fully on urgent priorities related to the coronavirus crisis.
