Hilfe im Zulassungsdschungel

The Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) supports companies in putting medical products on the market. The department “Industrial and Biomedical Optics” offers consulting for regulatory affairs and helps developing the required documents.


When authorizing medical devices, a number of normative processes, the "Regulatory Affairs", have to be taken into account. Since May 25th, 2017, the new European Medical Devices Regulation (MDR) and the new EU Regulation for In-vitro Diagnostics (IVDR) and their national implementation - the Medical Device Law Implementation Act (MPDG) form the basis for the marketing of medical devices in Europe and Germany. With a transitional period, they will replace the current EU directives (90/385 / EEC - active implantable medical devices, 93/42 / EEC - other medical devices and 98/79 / EC - in vitro diagnostics) by 2021 and 2022, respectively.
