In the fast-paced world of medical device regulations, staying up-to-date is crucial to ensure compliance and maintain smooth operations. This blog post highlights two recent developments that are reshaping the landscape of medical device compliance.

European Commission Publishes Harmonised Standards Under The Medical Device Regulations

The publications in the Official Journal of the European Union (OJEU) of references of harmonized standards under the medical devices regulations  Regulation (EU) 2017/745  and  Regulation (EU) 2017/746 are now available on their website.

Harmonised standards under the medical devices Regulations are developed by CEN and CENELEC. Once published by the Commission in the Official Journal of the European Union, the voluntary use of those standards confer presumption of conformity with the requirements of the regulations they aim to cover.

Summary / consolidated lists of the above publications are available on the standardisation webpages on healthcare engineering: Medical devices, In vitro diagnostic medical devices.

New Mandatory Medical Device Labeling Rules in Russia

From 1 September 2023, the Rules for mandatory labeling of medical devices in the Russian Federation comes into force.

This means that all participants in the circulation of goods from this date must be registered in Chestny ZNAK – the systems based on Data Matrix codes – a type of 2D code for tracking products in the supply chain.

By 1 September 2023, manufacturers and importers must describe their products in the catalog of marked goods and also fully set up the Data Matrix code ordering process, the code application process, and electronic reporting on the application, payment, and input into circulation of these codes.
