The 2017 EU Medical Device Regulations Under The Microscope, And What Do They Mean For Your Translations?

Two new European Union regulations on medical devices (MDR and IVDR) were implemented on May 25, 2017. The new legislation impacts the whole medical devices supply chain, meaning that many medical device manufacturers have begun to analyze their new responsibilities and build plans in order to address new areas of liability, including content localization. These new regulations will require close partnership with localization suppliers to ensure translation conformance.
