Harmonised Standard List

the plan for MDR and IVDR

The purpose of this harmonised standard list for MDR and IVDR is to gain detailed understanding of the current status and the planned future list. Therefore, we have consolidated the harmonised standards list with regard to the MDR and IVDR and the commission’s harmonisation plan. However, the harmonised standards are far from being complete, as discussed here.

Mandate 575 : 2021-03-12

We’ve done our best to get this list right, but making it comes down to detail-intensive, manual work. If you find mistakes, please let us know, so we can correct them. Thank you SWITEC and SNV for your expert input.
