Update on MDR transition and Etac’s readiness for compliance

With patient health and safety as a guiding principle, the European Council and the Parliament adopted Regulation 2020/561 amending Regulation (EU) 2017/745 on medical devices regarding application dates of certain of its provisions on 23 April. This Regulation postpones the date of application for most MDR provisions by one year. This postponement takes the pressure off national authorities, notified bodies, manufacturers and other actors so they can focus fully on urgent priorities related to the coronavirus situation.

Etac group has already been acting efficiently on the transition and intend to keep focus and stay on target for completion of the project as originally planned, even if some minor postponements will not result in any disturbances to our continued supply of high-quality products.
