After five years, the European council has released its final versions of Medical Device Regulations (MDR) and In Vitro Diagnostics Regulations (IVDR). The texts, which were officially released last week, detail agreements reached by European Parliament in May 2016 in each European Union language, as to clearly define regulations. The texts will be put to a vote on March 7, 2017, and if passed will be formally published and enforced in May or June of 2017.
