MDR 2017/745

EU 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 for the Innovation and competitiveness of the European medical device market.

    • Increased accountability of European Authorized Representatives
    • Stringent Clinical Evaluation
    • More Technical Documentation Requirements
    • EUDAMED Database
    • Implementation of UID
    • New classification method

The definition of Medical Device CE Marking is provided in MDR 2017/745, Article 2. The following devices fall article 2 definition, for example:

    • General use medical devices (Sterile and Non-Sterile)
    • Active Medical Devices
    • Non-Active medical device
    • Implantable Medical Devices
    • Medical equipment and machinery
    • Home Healthcare Devices
    • Software as Medical Devices (SAMD)
    • Active Implantable Medical Devices

Before being sold in the European Economic Area, medical devices must be CE marked. CE Marking verifies that your Medical Device has been evaluated by a

What is the process for obtaining CE certification? What is the CE Marking Approval Process for MDR? What goes into making a Technical File? The flow chart below answers many of the questions.

CE Marking Approval Process

Notified Body and complies with EU safety, health, and environmental regulations. You must 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 in accordance with medical device regulation. The CE Marking logo must be visible on both the primary and secondary packaging of the device.

Over the last four years, we have spent a significant amount of time and money building our in-house team MDR consultants‘ expertise to make I3CGLOBAL the best CE Marking consultants. By doing business in the cloud, we can provide multidisciplinary insights into Risk Analysis, Biological Evaluation, Clinical Follow-up, and Clinical Evaluation whilst minimizing travel and lodging costs.

We represent our global and local clients with the same intense emphasis on quality suitable for early CE Certification, thanks to our organization’s common, clear strategy and structure.

Before the final implementation of the EU MDR, all of the necessary and inevitable improvements are unknown. This will prove to be a time-consuming and difficult process for all medical device manufacturers. As a result, it is recommended that you stay informed about upcoming changes and their implications for your system and obtain expert technical advice from Mdr Consultants team of I3CGlobal for implementation and enforcement.

Medical Device Classification

As per MDR Article, 51 Medical Devices are divided into class I, IIa, IIb, and III, taking into account the intended purpose of the devices and their inherent risks. Medical Device Classification is mainly based on the following factors:

  • Does the device have a standalone action?
  • How long is the device in continuous use in the human body?
  • Is it an invasive device or a surgically invasive Medical Device?
  • Is it an implantable or active medical device
  • Does the Medical Device serve the purpose of the use of certain drugs?

The Medical Device is classified into:

  • Class 1
  • Class 1 Sterile
  • Class 1 Measuring
  • Class 1 Reusable
  • Class 11a
  • Class 11b
  • Class 111
Risk Class Risk Description Example
Class III High Drug-eluting cardiac stents, Absorbable Sutures, AIMD
Class IIb Medium-High Ventilators, orthopaedic implants, Radiotherapy equipment
Class IIa Medium-Low Surgical Blades, Suction equipment
Class I sterile Low Sterile dressings, Sterile gloves
Class, I measuring Low Volumetric urine bag
Class I basic Low Non Sterile Gloves

Medical Device Classification – Additional Information’s

Class 1 medical devices, according to the European Medical Device Regulation (MDR), have a low risk of causing damage to the patient and are therefore easier in nature than Class 1s, Class 1m, Class IIa, Class IIb, or Class III medical devices. The majority of Class 1 medical devices can be self-certified under EU MDR. It is not required that a Class 1 medical device be CE marked or that a Notified Body be involved. ISO 13485 introduction and certification are not needed for Class 1 component manufacturers.

QMS  enforcement is recommended as a minimum. In some words, certain controls are adequate to provide fair confirmation of the device’s protection and efficacy. By self-declaration, any Class 1 medical device may affix CE Mark. The manufacturer is responsible for ensuring that his product meets all of the Directive’s Essential Requirements and must fill out the Essential Condition Check-list.

We support class 1 Medical Device manufacturers with the following Services

(a) Guidance & Technical File

(b) Arrange Certificate of Compliance from and European Third Party.

(C) Arrange EU Representative from Europe

(d) Arrange Free Sale Certificate from Europe.

Steps before Class 1 Medical Device Self Declaration

All class 1 medical devices must go through few steps before placing them on the European market. They are the following.

    • Step 1: Research and competitor analysis and make sure the product is a medical device.
    • Step 2: Confirm that the Medical Device falls under self-declaration, i.e., class 1.
    • Step 3: Ensure that the general safety and performance requirements have been met.
    • Step 4: Clinical Evaluation performed and Report is available as per MDR and MEDDEV 2.7/1 Rev. 4
    • Step 5: Availability of Primary & Secondary Labels and packing plans
    • Step 6: EAR Agreement for Non-European manufactures.
    • Step 7: Assure the latest revision of Technical documentation is available with the declaration of Conformity.
Third-Party CE Compliance Certificate for Class I Medical Devices

Non-sterile, non-measuring medical instruments in Class 1 do not need to be certified by a Notified Body and should instead be certified by a third-party approval body. Manufacturers must realize that a third-party certificate is not needed for class 1 devices; instead, a self-attested declaration of compliance will suffice.

Class 1 Sterile Medical Device CE marking, Notified Body involvement is mandatory. Class 1 sterile manufactures should implement ISO 13485, and certification is recommended. GMP controls are necessary.

Class 1 Sterile Medical Device must comply with all the requirements for Class I devices. Establish and maintain the relevant procedures of a Medical Device Quality Management System.

Contact a Notified Body who can audit the Quality Management System and Technical Files.

Criteria for determining devices with measuring function.

The following criteria, if fulfilled together, indicate that a device has a measuring function:

  • The device intended to measure, quantitatively, a physiological or anatomical parameter, or – a quantity or a qualifiable characteristic of energy or of substances delivered to or removed from the human body.
  • The measurement results are displayed in legal units or other acceptable units within the meaning of Directive 80/181/EEC or are compared to at least one point of reference indicated in legal units or other acceptable units in compliance with the pre-mentioned Directive.
  • The intended purpose implies accuracy, claimed explicitly or implicitly.

Measuring activities during the manufacturing process, including those for calibration purposes, are not covered by this recommendation and do not imply a measuring function of the manufactured device.

Examples for Class I devices with a measuring function:

    • Non-active device for measuring body temperature.
    • Pacifier, which includes a non-active temperature display.
    • Device for indicating that body temperature is above or below a specified value.
    • Non-active non-invasive device for measuring blood pressure.
    • Non-active device for measuring intraocular pressure.
    • Device for measuring volume or flow of liquid or gases delivered to or removed from the human body.
    • Device for liquid delivery to the human body (e.g. medicine spoons, cups, droppers, without graduation or scale).
    • Device for displaying trends of physiological parameters (e.g. urine drainage bags without graduation or scale, callipers for obesity).
    • Eye-test chart

Note:- it is assumed that the relevant classification rules permit classification in Class I, provided that relevant criteria are met.

    • Class 1 Device with measuring functions are packed and supplied in a sterile condition require Notified Body Certificate, whereas the non-sterile class 1 measuring device does not!
    • ISO 13485 is Voluntary

EU MDR 2017/745 introduces new requirements for Reusable Surgical Instruments. All reusable surgical instruments fall under class 1r and are subject to conformity assessment by Notified Bodies.

Reusable Surgical Instruments are defined as “instruments intended for surgical use in cutting, drilling, sawing, scratching, scraping, clamping, retracting, clipping or similar procedures, without a connection to an active device and which is intended by the manufacturer to be reused after appropriate procedures such as cleaning, disinfection, and sterilization have been carried out.

MDR Class Ir CE Marking as per Article 20.1, 20.3, 20.4, and 20.5 and Article 52 (7c) can be achieved in the following methods:

CE Marking for Class 3 Medical Devices According to annexes II and III, the marking standards in MDR are far higher. This is where rigorous protocols will be implemented, owing to the fact that these devices pose the biggest danger to patients. According to MDR specifications, the majority of essential medical instruments are classified as Class 3. In comparison to other medical device manufacturers, all Class III medical device manufacturers must undergo rigorous performance and safety checks and clinical evaluation, as per the current MedDev 2.7.1 rev 4 guidelines.

Class III Medical Device manufactures have to submit Technical documentation or file to the Notified Body for approval under Annex II and do not allow the Annex III / Annex VI option.

Definition & Examples for Class III Medical Devices

Class 3/111 follows the same guidelines as 1s, 2a, 2b, but also has to have Notified Body design Examination and Technical Documentation or Technical File review before affixing CE Logo on your medical device. Class III, at times, will be relied on to sustain human lives, so malfunctions are not acceptable in any manner. Some examples would be pacemakers, cerebral simulators, and heart valves, medicated bandages, etc.

Notified Body must carry out audit under Annex II full quality assurance system (EN ISO 13485:2016), plus that the manufacturer must submit the Technical File / Design Dossier to the Notified Body for approval under Annex II, for all type of Class III medical devices including medical devices with ancillary medicine.

MDR Technical Documentation

Technical Documentation, so-called Technical File for Medical Device, is a comprehensive file covering complete information to demonstrate the device’s safety and performance against the manufacturers claimed intended use. The information given in the Technical Files is structured as per MDR and IVDR requirements suitably to address General Safety and Performance Requirements (GSPR).

The notified body will audit technical files annually to assess compliance with general safety and performance requirements. The Technical File should be developed for all types of device risk classes. ( I, Is, Im, Ir, IIa, IIb, III).

The latest version of Technical Files must be retained either in electronic or hardcopy form at manufacturer premises or authorized representative premise for potential request from an EU competent authorities or from Notified Body. During the initial phase of the CE Marking application, complete technical documentation must submit to the notified body. After closing all review comments and updating the technical file, the notified body issues CE Certificate.

All manufacturers need to update their technical documentation as all are aware of the change in regulation from MDD / IVD to MDR / IVDR. We are medical device regulatory consultants who provide MDR / IVDR remediation services. MedDeviceCorp team has gained sufficient knowledge in MDR/IVDR via training, internal debate, conferences, workshops, and live-up-gradation services.

MDR Technical Documentation Requirements

According to the new Medical Device Regulation, annex II identifies forty-seven specific requirements about the primary file technical documentation content and fifteen additional requirements from annex III on Post Market Surveillance.

Article 10 describes the obligation of manufacturers what is needed and why it is needed in the Medical Device Regulation Technical Documentation. Article 15 insists on an experienced regulatory person and his role in updating the Technical Documentation anytime for Notified Body assessment. While preparing a tech file, you should have sound knowledge technically to present information in the correct way; some of the core areas are the following.

    • Review existing documentation in support of meeting the applicable MDR Essential Requirements.
    • Study the device, Identify and evaluate gaps or deficiencies in your new EU MDR.
    • Determine applicable testing requirements and standards for your device after a Risk Analysis.
    • Organize Clinical Evidence in the form of a Clinical Evaluation Report (CER).
    • Preparation of Post Market Surveillance Report (PMS) and derive the conclusion of CER.
    • Preparation of Post Market Clinical Follow-Up Report (PMCF) and derive the conclusion of CER.
    • Review your specimen labelling and Instructions for Use (IFU)and User Manual.
    • Compile Pre-Clinical Verification and Validation documentation.

The MDD’s Design Dossier concept has been removed from the new EU MDR. 

We can deliver structured solutions for developing high-quality Technical Documentation for any risk class, starting from drafting the File, reviewing and modifying the contents, supporting filling the Gaps, submitting to Notified Body of your choice, and coordinating with Notified bodies till documentation is approved.

If you are finding ways to update a legacy medical device technical file to meet new medical device regulation, we at MedDeviceCorp help with Medical Device Technical File remediation service. After a thorough understanding of your subject device, we start our guidance and preparation to identify disparities between your medical device and present technical file/requirements. Unlike others, we do not allow the client team to work on the technical file till the successful completion of the CE Certification project.

Medical Device Risk Management

EN ISO 14971:2012 is the latest international standard for the Medical Device Risk Management Process for the Medical Devices( As per Harmonized Standards). The Risk Management Process contains 3 important parts:

  • Risk Analysis
  • Risk Evaluation
  • Risk Control

The Risk Analysis is the starting phase of the risk management process for a medical device. A medical device risk management plan is determined and implemented. The three important stages of the Risk Analysis Process are below.

  • Identification of the intended use and characteristics related to the safety of the medical device.
  • Identification of known or foreseeable hazards
  • Estimation of the risk for each hazardous situation

Risk management Procedure and Report

Thus risk analysis is the systematic use of the available information to estimate the risk in the identified hazards. The risk analysis activities and the results are recorded in a risk management file. Some of the Risk Analysis techniques explained in the standard are:

  • Preliminary Hazard Analysis (PHA)
  • Fault Tree Analysis (FTA)
  • Failure Mode and Effects Analysis (FMEA)
  • Failure Mode, Effects and Criticality Analysis (FMECA)
  • Hazard and Operability Study (HAZOP)
  • Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point (HACCP)

Depending on the intended use, characteristics, present stage of development of the medical device, one or more of the above techniques can be used for the risk analysis.

Medical Device Risk Management plan

Risk management activities must be planned for every project before the initialization of risk analysis activities.

  • The planning of risk activities shall be coherent with the risk class of the device and Intended use.
  • Putting together your risk management team.
  • Important, list the deliverables and reviews of each phase of the project
  • Suggestions for overall improvement as per Notified Body requirements.

Role of Consultants in Risk Management File

  • Review the hazards and control measures taken
  • Development of annexures as per standard
  • Guidance and suggestions for closing the identified GAPS.
  • Suggestions for overall improvement as per Notified Body requirements.
