EUDAMED state of play: delayed / MDR no delay

As confirmed by a statement on the Commission's website the MDR portion of the EUDAMED Database will be operational at the same time as the IVDR portion.The statement concerning the state of play is following:


The Commission concluded that it will only be possible to make EUDAMED operational once the entire system and its different modules have achieved full functionality and have been subject to an independent audit. Therefore EUDAMED’s launch will be done together for medical and in-vitro medical devices, at the original date foreseen for in-vitro medical devices i.e. May 2022.


The Commission amends the notice of delay with an additional bullet point that is even more important:


The date of application of the MDR remains May 2020.
