The journey of a medical device

Before a medical device can be legally marketed and sold in the European Union, CE marking is needed. The CE certificate verifies that the device meets all regulatory requirements for medical devices. A medical device’s safety, suitability for intended use and performance must be established before a CE marking can be affixed to the device to indicate conformity with the requirements.

Medical devices deemed to be high-risk, such as Awario, are obliged to have a CE certificate by a Notified Body to prove the fulfillment of requirements. Years of research and clinical validation are needed before the device can be audited and certified.

A Notified Body supervises changes made to the device until the end of its life cycle. If the manufacturer makes changes to the medical device, the Notified Body should be informed. Adverse incidents should always be reported to the Notified Body as well as to the Finnish Medicines Agency Fimea.
