EC Rep

If you want to sell medical devices in Europe, but your company does not have a physical location in Europe, you have to appoint an Authorised Representative. This has been laid down in the new Medical Device Regulation (EU) 2017/745 (MDR).

The obligations of the Authorised Representative

  • verify that the EU declaration of conformity and technical documentation have been drawn up and, where applicable, that an appropriate conformity assessment procedure has been carried out by the manufacturer;
  • keep available a copy of the technical documentation, the EU declaration of conformity and, if applicable, a copy of the relevant certificate;
  • verify that the manufacturer has complied with the registration obligations;
  • in response to a request from a competent authority, provide that competent authority with all the information and documentation necessary to demonstrate the conformity of a device;
  • forward to the manufacturer any request by a competent authority;
  • cooperate with the competent authorities on any preventive or corrective action taken to eliminate or mitigate the risks posed by devices;
  • inform the manufacturer about complaints and reports from healthcare professionals, patients and users about suspected incidents related to the device;
