Medical Devices Directive

Originally European Union Council Directive 93/42/EEC (14 June 1993) laid out the regulations for the use of medical devices. A reviewed and amended directive 2007/47/EC, which became mandatory on 21 March 2010, expands the directive to all medical devices and increasing stipulations: including for clinical evaluation data and associated documentation.
