Did you know that we all use medical devices? Sometimes, even as part of our daily lives.

What changes on 26 May 2021 and what is your role as a patient or consumer?

This webinar, held on 7 May 2021, summarised how the new Medical Device Regulation (MDR) aims to ensure safe and performant medical devices for all.

The event was organised by the Directorate-General for Health and Food Safety (DG SANTE) of the European Commission in the context of the Communication campaign for the new medical devices legislation, an initiative supported by the Third Health Programme 2014 – 2020.

It brought together representatives of the European Commission, patients, consumers, health professionals and anyone interested to know more about the new legislation. The webinar was held in English.
