  • Manufacturers must continue collecting clinical evidence for all devices once they are on the market to demonstrate their safety and effectiveness
  • Manufacturers must report data on a new centralized electronic system, and the data will be made publicly available
  • Manufacturers are responsible for determining which devices will be reclassified and which will need further review by a notified body
  • Manufacturers must have systems in place to cover their financial responsibility for harm caused by defective devices
