CE Marking

The manufacturer certifies that their product complies with the General Safety and Performance Requirements of the applicable European Regulation by applying the CE Mark. Once a product has received the CE Marking, it can travel freely within the European Union and the European Free Trade Association (EFTA) (EU). Additionally, it means that non-conforming goods may be withdrawn by customs and other enforcement agencies.

EU 2017/ 745 – MDR CE Marking

EU 2017/ 745 Medical Device Regulation is the new regulation that makes its way after negotiations between the European Commission, European Parliament, and the European Council. New medical device regulation replaces the medical device Directives (93/42/EEC) and the Active Implantable Devices Directive (90/385/EEC).

The background work for the EU MDR by the European Commission dates back to 2012 when a plan to restructure the Regulatory Framework and revise the existing regulations was laid down. The new regulation was first read out in the Parliament in 2014, and the final text was available in June 2016. After the current translation works into the official European Languages, it is expected that the MDR will be available for application by May 2017.

The overall objective of the MDR CE Marking has been to ensure a high level of protection of human health and safety and to provide a framework that is Conducive to the Innovation and competitiveness of the European medical device market.

CE Marking Approval Process

EU 2017/ 745 Notified Body

EU 2017/ 745 Medical Device Notified Bodies are authorized to issue CE Certificate by verifying the submitted technical documentation to prove the safety and performance of the device and to check its compliance with EU safety, health, and environmental regulations. We consultants will create a technical file showing that your Medical Device / Medical Instruments / Medical Disposables / Medical Software / Medical Machinery / Home Health Care Devices meets all of the EU Medical Device Regulation (MDR) standards before applying the CE Marking. Following CE certification, the manufacturer/importer must establish the CE marking logo on the medical device. The CE Marking logo must be visible on both the primary and secondary packaging of the device.
