UK Medical Device Registration Overview

The UK Medical Device Classification

The UK Medical device classifications are based on the UK MDR 2002. Classifying the device is the very first step in the entire process of obtaining approval and launching it in the market.

The manufacturers will now have to appoint a UK-approved body to obtain UKCA marking. Though CE marking is allowed, it is applicable only for a certain time period. The transition timelines for the same are mentioned below –

Freyr is currently supporting many manufacturers with the post-brexit transitions.

*The current transition timeline for CE marking under EU MDR/EU IVDR is recognised by UK MHRA and the timelines will differ as per the scope of the devices

Post-market Surveillance Requirements

Post-market surveillance requirements under UK MDR 2002 are quite stringent to ensure patient/user safety and effectiveness.  Currently, the PMS activities include reporting of incidents/findings to the MHRA. The MHRA has released comprehensive guidance on the same.
