This certification ensures the quality system is in accordance with Regulation (EU) 2017/745 allowing for CPR product line sales in the European market. The EU Medical Device Registration (MDR) replaces the EU's Medical Device Directive (93/42/EECI) thatwent into effect in May of 2021.According to the European Commission, (EC), no existing requirements have been removed but new requirements have been added to the MDR.

  • Reclassification of devices, wider scope of devices

  • Coverage of internet sales of medical devices

  • Introduction of clinical evaluation consultation procedure

  • New Unique Device Identification system with enhanced traceability and post-market surveillance
