The MDCG (Medical Device Coordination Group) has just published the Guidance MDCG 2022-5 which aims to establish the demarcation between the two legal frameworks established in Regulation (EU) 2017/745 on medical devices and Directive 2001/83/EC on medicinal products for human use.

This guidance provides explanations, definitions and examples clarifying the borderline between medical devices and medicinal products. Chapters are dedicated to herbal products, substance-based devices and medical devices and medicinal product combinations

This document, developed by an expert working group, aims to support a uniform implementation of the MDR across the EU and may be revised to reflect up-to-date scientific and technical knowledge as well as the outcomes of the regulatory discussions within the MDCG Working Group on borderline and classification of these devices.
