Transitional provisions are to be amended pending the entry into force of new EU rules within the area of medical technology. The Government's proposal means that transitional provisions pertaining to such things as the Act concerning Medical Technology Products will be amended so that older provisions will continue to apply until 25 May 2021.
The reason for this is that the start date for the application of the new EU rules in the area of medical technology will be postponed one year as a result of the corona pandemic. The EU rules will begin to apply on 26 May 2021 instead of the 26 May 2020.
The Riksdag voted in favour of the Government's proposal. The amendments will come into force on 26 May 2020.
