BSI UK (0086) is a leading full-scope Approved Body under the UK MDR 2002, as amended. We review your medical device to ensure conformity against UK legislation by offering a range of flexible certification services providing you with efficient pathways to bring your product to market.
Given the stringent requirements on patient safety and device performance, accessing Great Britain market brings challenges that can delay your product launch.
UKCA marking is the medical device manufacturer’s claim that a product meets the Essential Requirements (ER) of the UK MDR 2002, as amended.
To understand which requirements you need to meet, you must classify the device and identify the appropriate conformity assessment route for your product. This dictates the required activities to demonstrate conformity.
We will review the route you chose to confirm its suitability, and work with you to execute the most efficient review process for the route selected. Our trusted review processes will allow you to build reliability and confidence into your UKCA marking project planning.
