The EU Medical Device Regulation
The EU Medical Device Regulation (MDR) requires supply chain reporting to maintain market access. Assent supply chain sustainability platform helps complex manufacturers get there.
Complying With the EU Medical Device Regulation
The EU MDR establishes a regulatory framework for medical devices that safeguards public health and safety while supporting the competitiveness of the market. The regulation places restrictions and reporting requirements on substances used in the design and manufacture of medical devices, and the substances in scope of the regulation change frequently.
Manufacturers need to know when a substance is added and when substances used in their parts change. While this data can be difficult to collect from suppliers, the alternative is costly — enforcement actions can be taken by every EU member state for a single infraction.
Don’t Just Meet Your Requirements — Start Outdoing Them
While rules under RoHS are well-established, labeling requirements can be complicated, data can be difficult to collect, and the actual data you need often changes as exemptions expire, new substances are restricted, and parts are altered.
Assent’s solution was built in collaboration with supply chain and regulatory experts, giving you the deep insights you need to avoid costly enforcement action despite complex requirements — and continue your company’s growth in the EU.
The Risks of EU MDR Non-Compliance
Requirements under the EU MDR are stringent, but failure to comply could result in lost market access, product recalls, and lawsuits if complications arise from non-compliant products. Without Assent’s deep-mapping of your supply chain, due diligence is complicated and costly. You may also face delays in material sourcing due to supply chain disruptions and reputational damage.
Understanding the EU Medical Device Regulation
How steep is the cost of EU MDR non-compliance? A French company was fined $85,000 USD and five employees were criminally charged after it was discovered that their implants contained industrial-grade silicone.
