Technical consumer protection; registration of economic operators
Manufacturers, authorized representatives and importers (importers) of medical devices must register via the electronic system for the registration of economic operators (EUDAMED) before placing a product on the market.
On December 1, 2020, the European Commission (COM) launched the first of six planned modules of the European Database for Medical Devices (EUDAMED) for "Actor Registration". This module will enable concerned companies as well as competent authorities to fulfill their registration obligations described in Article 31 of Regulation (EU) 2017/745 (MDR).
All economic operators (manufacturers, authorized representatives and importers) must register in EUDAMED prior to the first placing on the market (dispensing against payment or free of charge) of active (energy source dependent) medical devices.
The registration of manufacturers, authorized representatives and importers as well as the assignment 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").
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 (Pharmacy departments) are responsible as enforcement authorities.
