What is a CE mark for a medical device?

You find the CE mark on toys, electronics, protective clothing, and many other products sold in Europe. CE marking was introduced to support the EU’s goal of removing trade barriers within the EU. Originally, products with possible safety, health or environmental issues had to be approved by each country. Now, national legislation is harmonized into Europe-wide directives or regulations; if manufacturers guarantee both the product and testing is conform these directives, they have access to all EU countries at once. Manufacturers must put the CE mark on their products to signal they conform to the applicable European directives.

How to maximize your impact

How do you know what product will be successful in the future? What is the context of the current treatment? How is this context evolving? By asking smart questions and getting objective answers using both systematic and proven methods, we find out together how to maximize your impact in the healthcare- and medical device industry.

R & D

We can develop your product

How to meet all technical requirements? What regulatory pathway should be taken? How should I organize my clinical evaluation? We know all about design, engineering, and validation, and understand what is needed to pass the notified body and FDA and get market approval for your product, including CE marking.

Operations

We can supply your product

Proving that all manufacturing processes of your product are controlled (to ensure that they repetitively deliver the desired results) is more demanding than ever, due to ever-increasing regulations. Medical devices must also be fully traceable from raw material to clinical use. We can handle these operations, so you can focus on sales.

Legal Manufacturer

We can take responsibility for your
product

Legal Manufacturers must continuously evaluate the clinical performance of their product and demonstrate that it complies with all regulations. Legal Manufacturers also need to fulfil all requirements related to both quality- and regulatory management. We take full responsibility for you, so you can focus on product innovation.

Notified body & CE mark

Did you know that as a manufacturer, you must officially declare that your product conforms to the requirements? This declaration requires technical documentation, to support your ‘case’ in that your development process, and resulting medical products, are manufactured and tested conform all regulations.

Medical devices are divided into different risk classes. For the lowest risk class manufacturers may self-certify. Meaning they themselves can draw the conclusion that the technical documentation proves conformity with the regulations and put a CE mark on it.

Example of a medical device CE mark medical device, using notified body CE mark ‘CE 0344’

For medium or high-risk medical devices, conformity with the regulations cannot be done by the manufacturer; a Notified Body must assess conformity before it can be placed on the market. What is a notified body in CE marking? These are organisations designated by member states of the EU who can assess conformity with specific regulations.

Medical products can only be assessed by organisations with a notified body certification specifically for assessing medical devices. The number of the Notified Body involved in the assessment must be shown; an implant assessed by the Notified Body MedCert will show ‘CE 0482’ and shown here is an example of Dekra ‘CE 0304’ as Notified Body.

More Engineering challenges and asking the right questions

Asking the right questions is the first step to a successful project. Having impact on the end user means impact in the market. Some examples:

  • How do you know what product will be successful in the future?
  • What regulatory pathway should be taken?
  • How can we ensure the medical device is fully monitored and traceable from raw material to clinical use?
  • How is the clinical performance tracked and market access ensured?

One of the steps many customers do is answering above questions using an Innovation Scan. We call it ‘Innoscan’. Get in contact with Baat to see what can lead to a commercially viable product development and real impact in the medical device business.
