MHRA announces new regulatory pathway for innovative medical technologies

By May 26, 2023No Comments

MHRA has previously spoken about their intention to form IDAP, the Innovative Devices Access Pathway, in collaboration with NICE, Health Technology Wales (HTW) and the Scottish Health Technology Group (SHTG).

Today, they have issued further information on this project, including estimated timelines.

IDAP is planned for launch later in 2023, with the intention of giving innovators a support system with targeted advice. It is hoped this will bring products to patients quicker.

MHRA are encouraging innovators with products addressing clinical needs to get in touch to register for further information ahead of the launch. This can be done by contacting IDAPEnquiries@mhra.gov.uk with your name, organisation name, and email address.

This is an exciting step in the shaping of the future regulatory system, and we hope it will make a smoother process for innovators!
