Innovate UK have commissioned a survey to understand the impact on the impending EU Medical Device Regulations (MDR) on UK SMEs. Companies are encouraged to give their feedback, including specific problems and needs, on the implementation of the MDR.
The MDR process began on 27th May 2017 and will be fully implemented by 26th May 2020.
Kevin Kiely, Chief Executive of Medilink North of England, said “It is important that SMEs have an influence over future interventions regarding the new EU Medical Device Regulation and we would greatly appreciate it if you could fill out this confidential MDR readiness' survey."
It is required that an individual responsible for coordinating MDR compliance of the company will complete the survey, such as CEO or regulatory office manager. If you have further queries about filling it in, feel free to contact Tom Wright, Innovation & Commercialisation Manager at Medilink North of England.
The deadline for completion of the survey is 12:00pm, August 16th 2019 and it roughly takes 10 minutes to complete. The results will be anonymous and your company’s details will not be shared with any other party but the findings will offer support and clarity to companies in a period of change.
