Act 17087 had updated references and similar testing to the previous Act 950, but with an additional item of “marking and instructions” that will evaluate the information present in the device under certification and also the user manual information. 

The office letters clarify that the new act will come into force on Dec. 27th, 2023 and all the applications shall be under this new act. However, the Agency is allowing the laboratories that are accredited for the previous act to perform the safety tests under the new act for a year term until they get the formal accreditation for the new act, as the tests and procedures are very similar.
