The journey of a medical device

Before a medical device can be legally marketed (sold) in the European Union, a CE Mark certificate is needed. This certification verifies that  the device meets all regulatory requirements for medical devices. Years of research and clinical validation is needed before the device can be audited and certified. Finland has a few Notified Bodies, conformity assessment bodies, that have been designated to carry out conformity assessment according to EU regulations, and that can issue certificates. If changes are made to the device, the Notified Bodies and Fimea (Finnish Medicines Agency) should always be informed. More information on Fimea’s homepage.
