Notified Bodies for Medical Devices

The Governments of the European member states designated some organizations known as Notified Bodies who are being found competent to make independent judgments about whether or not a medical device (product) complies with the essential requirements laid down by each CE marking directive. Up-to-date contact details for all Notified Bodies, as well as details of their scope of notification, can be found in European Commission's NANDO database.

The Notified Bodies are restricted to provide advice and assistance to clients whose products are being tested and certified by them. As consultants we believe that we can offer a better and cheaper service to clients without any restrictions. We normally takes turnkey projects , based on the repeated need of industry - “single point contact” Where we place business with Notified Bodies on behalf of clients, it is our practice to pass the Notified Body fees on at cost to the client with minimum deviation on taxes and service fee.

We take up the responsibility of certifying your device in the allocated time!!! What we do?

  1. Find the Notified Body for client based on budget and internal readiness.
  2. Prepare technical file on behalf of client and submit to Notified Body.

The Authorised Representative shall provide the relevant authorities with such information as is necessary for them to assure themselves of the safety or otherwise, of the product. The authorised representative is not responsible for the product or its impact within the European Union but is responsible for maintaining data relevant to the manufacture and the design of the product.

The appointment of an Authorised Representative secures for a manufacture a presence within the Union specifically for quality assurance purposes. A contract between the manufacturer and the authorised representative is necessary. The contract is in two parts (i) initial registration and annual maintenance of status and (ii) Contingency support; this is invoked in the event that relevant authorities require examination of the Authorised Representative's records and managerial or technical support.
