Two-year delay for EU-US MRA (mutual recognition agreement)?
This article was originally published in Clinica
The mutual recognition agreement (MRA) on medical devices between the EU and US is unlikely to come into force until late 2003, two years later than the planned implementation date of January 1 2002. Both parties are to discuss a two-year extension of the confidence-building period during a forthcoming teleconference. The need for an extension follows a series of delays and disputes over the implementation of confidence-building activities.
