Clinical trials with medical devices: Expected changes in the legal requirements and BASEC
On May 26, 2021, the Medical Device Regulation (MDR at EU level) and in Switzerland the Ordinance on clinical trials with medical devices (ClinO-MD) will come into force. Accordingly, new requirements will be placed on clinical investigations with medical devices.
If you are planning to submit a new clinical investigation with a medical device before May 26, 2021, or if you currently have a clinical investigation with a medical device under review by the ethics committee, we strongly advise you to read on the swissethics.ch website how the transition of such investigations is to be regulated.
