Regulatory requirements for medical devices

Medical devices are instruments, apparatus, devices, software, materials or other articles for use in diagnostic and/or therapeutic applications. However, medical devices must not have a pharmacological, immunological or metabolic effect. Medical devices must undergo a conformity assessment procedure in Europe. This conformity assessment procedure varies in complexity depending on the medical device class.

In the coming years, the requirements for medical devices and their manufacturers will be significantly tightened by the forthcoming new Medical Device Regulation of the European Union. These new requirements of the Medical Devices Directive 2017/745 represent an enormous challenge for many manufacturers.

DREHM Pharma can be a valuable partner for these challenges and make you fit for the new requirements.
