Implementation of the 2017/745 MDR by Notified Bodies: Weaknesses of the Technical Documentation

The new Medical Devices Regulation (MDR) 2017/745 presents different variables for manufacturers, who now need to implement important changes to the current technical dossiers.
The main aspects to focus on will be:

  • Usability of the products
  • Reviewing the Risk Analysis in relation to Usability 
  • Post-Market Surveillance set-up
  • The new checklist of the General Safety and Performance Requirements which replaces the current Essential Requirements

Manufacturers will also need to present the production process and the raw materials used and to implement changes to the product labeling in detail.
In the past few months, notified bodies have started to analyze the technical documentation prepared by manufacturers. As a consequence, they have provided important indications on what the weak points are and what level of precision is needed to comply with the MDR regulation.
In addition, the new Corrigendum of November 2019 translated into a change of planning and timelines for many manufacturers, which led to a re-evaluation of the deadlines for carrying out the needed activities.
