EU MDR Labeling Software Helps Companies Comply


Lately, there’s been quite the buzz around the European Union Medical Device Regulation or better known as, EU MDR. The EU MDR is a priority for all companies in the medical device industry that distribute products in the EU and will officially take effect on May 26, 2021. This regulation has more need for data management and complex assessment procedures than the regulation it replaces (MDD – Medical Devices Directive). All other classes of devices can continue to be sold under a valid MDD certificate until May 2024 or the MDD certificate’s expiry date. As the deadline approaches, there are some key labeling elements that medical device companies must adhere to for EU MDR compliance. Within this blog post, we will break down what EU MDR is and how it will impact your labeling process. 


1. What is EU MDR?

The EU MDR is designed to ensure public health and patient safety across Europe and to increase quality and transparency of medical devices in the healthcare supply chain through label design, label approval, and label tracking standardization. Many organizations within the healthcare industry who have medical devices that are implantable, life-supporting, or life-sustaining must also bear a Unique Device Identifier (UDI) on its labels, which includes: 


UDI issuing agencies for EU MDR are: 



2. When do I have to comply with EU MDR?

All medical device manufacturers doing business in Europe must comply with EU MDR guidelines by May 26, 2021. This regulation applies to all organizations doing business in Europe, meaning medical devices manufactured outside of the EU, but distributed throughout European Union nations will also need to comply. The final compliance deadline for all classes of medical devices manufactured is May 26th, 2024.

4. How can TEKLYNX help?

Whenever a new regulation is introduced, it can be stressful and overwhelming to iron out the new guidelines that you must comply with. With new designs, icons, and even sizes of the labels, it can be difficult to find EU MDR labeling software for your company.  

The cost of not having EU MDR labeling software implemented for your company can cause even greater stressors for your company though by facing quarantined products, recalls, and even financial penalties or other sanctions due to non–compliant labels. Luckily for you, TEKLYNX has two EU MDR labeling software solutions that will help you easily and seamlessly comply with this regulation.
