Is your device a Well-Established Technology (WET) under EU MDR?
DEVICE L❤️VE Live! is a biweekly and interactive live show featuring expert panelists discussing timely topics, challenges, and solutions in the medical device industry. The panelists also answer audience questions. Every episode is added to our podcast, too.
Please view our blog for a other shows, as well as webinars, commentary from our experts, and more.
Based on the amount of questions we're receiving around the definition of a Well-Established Technology (WET), evidence suggests there's a lot of confusion and in turn, potential impact to the industry. The MDR didn't provide a definition, however, the MDCG-6 Guidance on sufficient clinical evidence for legacy devices now provides a definition and further details around sufficient clinical evidence for WET and non-WET devices. Even with this guidance, we're still seeing debate between device companies and their notified bodies on what is classified as WET.
In this show, we'll provide our current thinking on this debate and some tips for interacting with your notified body. As always, please bring your questions to the live discussion!
