Technical consumer protection; registration of economic operators

Manufacturers, authorised representatives and importers (importers) of medical devices must register via the electronic system for the registration of economic operators (EUDAMED) before placing a device on the market.


On 1 December 2020, the European Commission (COM) launched the first of the six planned modules of the European Database for Medical Devices (EUDAMED) for "Actor Registration". This module will allow concerned companies as well as competent authorities to comply with their registration obligations described in Article 31 of Regulation (EU) 2017/745 (MDR).

All economic operators (manufacturers, authorised representatives and importers) must register in EUDAMED before placing active medical devices (dependent on an energy source) on the market for the first time (dispensing against payment or free of charge).


The registration of manufacturers, authorised representatives and importers as well as the allocation of the Single Registration Number (SRN) is carried out by the respective competent authority via the EUDAMED module called "Actor Registration", which has been released by the European Commission (for link see "Online procedure").

Special notes

The Bavarian State Ministry of Health and Care is responsible for monitoring the placing on the market of non-active medical devices, and the governments of Upper Bavaria and Upper Franconia (pharmaceutical departments) are responsible as enforcement authorities.
