What is a medical device?

According to the Council Directive 93/42/EEC a ‘medical device’ means any instrument, apparatus, appliance, material or other article, whether used alone or in combination, including the software necessary for its proper application intended by the manufacturer to be used for human beings for the purpose of:

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.
