UKCA Marking for Medical Devices
DEKRA Is Now an UK Approved Body
UKCA marking came into force when the UK left the European Union and is placed on medical devices to show conformity to the Medical Device Regulation (MDR 2002 as amended).
CE marking is currently still recognized in Great Britain subject to meeting timelines and requirements mandated by the MHRA and EU. Please see the MHRA website for latest information - Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency - GOV.UK (www.gov.uk) .
Once CE marked devices are no longer accepted on the UK market, manufacturers that want to place their products on the UK market need to comply with the new UKCA marking regulation.
What do I need to do?
- You must register all medical devices and IVDs with the MHRA, regardless of class. More information can be found on the MHRA website here.
- Manufacturers based outside of the UK must appoint a UK Responsible Person who assumes the responsibilities of the manufacturer.
- You need to classify your device in order to identify the appropriate conformity assessment route. You must apply the UKCA mark to products to be placed on the market in Great Britain after successful conformity assessment. Depending on the class of device, this can either be self-declared or after third-party assessment by a UK Approved Body such as DEKRA.
