The links below will guide you through the papers and regulations concerning Medical Devices. We hope this will give you more insight and understanding of the Medical Device Directives.
From the regulatory point of view, the requirements for the introduction of a medical device on the European market are fulfilled. The CE mark is an indication to show conformity to all obligations for medical devices as required by the Medical Devices Directives. With the CE mark in place your products can be legally marketed in Europe (precisely the EU, EEA and the few other countries having mutual recognition agreements in place).
For the penetration to non-EU markets a Free Sales Certificate must be provided by the manufacturer. The Free Sales Certificate demonstrates from the government that you place products, legally with the CE mark on the European market.
The European Free Sales Certificate (FSC) / Certificate of Marketability, is issued by the Competent Authority of the EU member state where the “manufacturer” in Europe or his authorized representative (EC REP) has his registered place of business. If the manufacturer is not situated in Europe only the Authorized Representative is able to obtain the Free Sales Certificate on behalf of the manufacturer.
