European Parliament accepts Proposal for extension of legacy period

On February 16, 2023, the European Parliament voted in favour of the Proposal to prolong the transitional provisions for certain medical devices and in vitro diagnostic medical devices.

The decision passed with a majority of 537 votes.

This decision affects legacy devices, i.e., those devices certified under the previous Directives and meeting legacy requirements.
