Woundcare Medical Devices BSIWoundcare is a diverse field with a wide range of treatments, utilizing an array of technologies. This diversity is mirrored by the range of classifications that apply. Devices can span the entire spectrum of classification.

The diversity of intended uses and technologies means that an expert CE marking Notified Body such as BSI is essential in helping you meet the necessary regulations and getting your devices to market quickly.

What are woundcare medical devices and how are they classified?

Woundcare devices range from the simplest classification, Class I through to the highest classification, Class III depending on the technology and intended use. The regulatory route to compliance is also broad ranging from self certification by the manufacturer to detailed reviews and approvals involving a Notified Body such as BSI and a Competent Authority.

As a result of this diversity and the growing need to address the broad spectrum of woundcare devices, the need for an expert CE marking partner is essential.
