We are pleased to hear that finally, German parliament regulated the implementation of the EU Medical Device Directive (MDR) into national medical device law with the resolution of the Medical Device Implementation Act (MPDG). It was high time for manufacturers and us as their partners who develop, test and make sure to deliver safe and innovative medical devices. The high standards of clinical research in Germany are maintained and patient safety will be strengthened. We will now be able to plan and set up future clinical trials beyond 26.5.2020. After final approval of the Federal Council the new regulations will immediately come into force.
