How to approve 3D printed medical devices?

Workshop Review

Workshop Review

In the light of the upcoming new regulations coming into force in May 2020 a lot of uncertainty is out in the market.

Will it affect all classes of medical devices? Will same rules apply also for AM applications or is there exceptions? And how – for instance – is the users’ way to order those?


Our workshop gave an overview about the legal and economic framework of 3d printing for medical devices and implants – from legislation and billing processes to integrate services into health insurance catalogues where especially the German market is very specific. Moreover, the possibilities to cover potential risks were discussed.

A summary of the entire workshop has already been made available to all participants and will be shared with all network members shortly before publishing it externally around mid-year 2020.

If you have any questions about this workshop or any of the MGA Medical activities, please feel free to reach out to the dedicated Network Manager Dr. Cora Lüders-Theuerkauf.
