First-class adaptation to the new Medical Devices Act (MPG)

In pharmaceutical and medical translations, tolingo not only focuses on absolute precision and correct semantics, but also on compliance with necessary standards and guidelines. Manufacturers, importers and dealers can therefore naturally also turn to tolingo for help with the new Medical Device Regulation (MDR), which will come into force in just a few months.

The regulation was published on 05 May 2017. A transitional period of three years applies to manufacturers of already approved medical devices, i.e. until 26th May 2021, by which time the new MDR requirements must be met. If you have not yet adapted to the new directive, we will help you as soon as possible so that your products can also be kept safely on the European market. We take care of a punctual but nevertheless careful adaptation of your medical devices. For more information on the new regulation, click here or contact us.
