The new Medtech EU MDR/IVD regulations published at the end of May pose a major strategic and operative challenge to the entire industry, and they will have a major impact on the business performance of many companies and SMEs. All companies are strongly challenged. The first stakeholders have prepared GAP analyses to realize the tight implementation requirements by 2020 (MDR) and 2023 (IVDR). There are more questions than answers at this time, especially as the interpretations of the legislation have not yet been established. This is further complicated by the fact that there is a looming shortage in Switzerland for the resources requirements (an estimated 1,400 skilled workers) and in the operative budget of Swiss companies (from up to 400 million Swiss francs per year).
