This webinar explains the process for Notified Body transfer and Registrar selection for any company that is faced with an urgent need to transfer, because their current Notified Body is unable to review and approve CE Marking applications in a timely manner or if the Notified Body is in the process of losing the status of designated Notified Body.
Learning About the Notified Body Transfer and Registrar Selection
On Thursday, June 23 the UK voted to exit the European Union (i.e., Britex). MHRA will continue to regulate medical devices sold in the UK and it is unlikely the UK will implement a system that is radically different from the current medical device regulations. However, there are several Notified Bodies that are designated by the UK for issuing CE Certificates to manufacturers of medical devices. The two largest of these are BSI and SGS. Both companies will no longer be British Notified Bodies when the transition out of the EU is complete.
This means that these two Notified Bodies will need to either become Notified Bodies in another EU country or they will no longer be a Notified Body. Even if these two Notified Bodies are able to acquire another existing Notified Body, and/or move their operations to another EU member state, all of the existing certificates will need to be transferred. Certificates will remain valid for a transition period and the new European Medical Device Regulations will require new certificates within the next 7 years anyway. However, if BSI and SGS are not able to re-issue CE Certificates, then customers will be forced to transfer to other Notified Bodies.
I will be gathering information from various Notified Bodies during the next couple of weeks regarding the Notified Body transfer process and providing a summary of my findings. In addition, I will also explain why manufacturers should not get nervous and worry that their certificates are in jeopardy.
The information presented will also explain strategies for avoiding transfer to a new Notified Body and how to avoid some of the pitfalls of the transfer process if you choose to proceed with a transfer.
