[FEATURED] Timelines And Deadlines For Stakeholders To Submit Information To EU’s Eudamed Database

IT system deadlines are renowned for being delayed. With speculation that the full implementation of the Eudamed medical device database will be postponed again, what will this mean for stakeholders?


The timelines and deadlines for uploading information into the upgraded Eudamed database have never been easy to understand. Indeed, the complex wording and cross-referencing in Articles 123 and 113 of the Medical Device Regulation and IVD Regulation, respectively, have perplexed even the experts and lawyers over the years.

Gradually, light has been shone on Eudamed’s intricate web of compliance conditions, and the Medical Device Coordination Group has issued guidance. But in parallel, it has also emerged that there are now likely to be problems with the European Commission managing to launch the full system on its 26 May 2022 anticipated go-live date (already itself delayed by some two years compared with the date originally set).
