What is EU MDR?
The Medical Device Regulation (MDR) changed the European legal framework for medical devices and introduced new responsibilities for the European Medicines Agency (EMA) and for national authorities in the assessment of certain categories of products.

The MDR introduces new or revised responsibilities for EMA for:
·       Medicines with an integral device, such as pre-filled syringes and pens, and pre-filled inhalers;
·       Medical devices containing an ancillary medicinal substance to support the proper functioning of the device, for example drug-eluting stents, bone cement containing an antibiotic, catheters coated with an antibiotic agent and condoms coated with spermicides;
·      Medical devices made from substances that are absorbed by the human body to achieve their intended purpose; and
·      Borderline products for which there is uncertainty over which regulatory framework applies. Common borderlines are between medicinal products, medical devices, cosmetics, biocidal products, herbal medicines and food supplements (European Medicines Agency, 2022)
