The May issue of the Journal of Medical Device Regulation, a peer-reviewed journal from the UK, recently covered the new EU Medical Devices Regulation in an article by AMDR’s Dan Vukelich. “How will the new EU Medical Device Regulation affect the reprocessing of single-use devices (SUDs)? ” explores Article 17 of the new MDR, with a focus on its impact on the reprocessing industry. According to the article, “experience demonstrates that regulation will provide an overt, legal and safe pathway for hospitals to acquire lower-cost and environmentally preferable reprocessed or re-manufactured devices.” AMDR recently published an official position paper on the new regulation, which included AMDR’s recommendation that European Member States “opt in” to the CE marking paradigm for SUD reprocessing to help their hospitals safely save money and reduce waste.
