in what cases is it possible to exclude Clause 7.3 (Design and development) from QMS?
Questions Regarding Clinical Evaluation
We have noticed that our current clinical evaluation report does not meet the MDR requirements due to unsatisfactory documentation. Eventhough all clinical tests and results are good enough for proofing the product usage the consultant company did not properly documented as regulatory requested format and contents .So we need to reorganize CER report and need a new company/individual to assist us. Our intention is to work with a competent and reliable agent. In addition to CER work we also need to rework on some tests(Biocompatibility).
So I need your guidance and recommendation for selecting a test center and CER process.Do you know any source for recommending us?
ISO Certification - how long is the certification valid, and when do you recertify?
Once you pass the ISO 13485 audit and receive certification, for how long is the certification period, and at which time period/interval do you need to recertify with an ISO Certification body?
4.2.4 and 4.2.5
I had one question. What does this verse mean exactly for 4.2.4 and 4.2.5 on ISO 13485? The organization shall retain the records for at least the lifetime of the medical device as defined by the organization, or as specified by applicable regulatory requirements, but not less than two years from the medical device release by the organization.
ISO 13485 toolkit ref 11
I wonder if you can give me some guidance on ISO 13485 toolkit ref 11 procedure for production and service provision.
As we are a distributor the only part I seem able to answer on here is 3.3.7, because I can relate that to the batch and serial tracking once we have received the goods through to their delivery at customer.
I know the QMS says various parts of 7.5 can be excluded.
But I am not sure if need to fill in more in order to be complaint?
MDR requirements for IFU

Diferent references for manufacturer and distributor
As a local distributor I'm buying MD Calls IIa to a International Distributor. The Manufacturer presents a Product Code X, but the International Distributor present us a diferente Order Code Y. Is this compliant with the new MDR?
In my country MD Regulator, the product is registered with the manufacturer code.
Which code should I register im my ERP?
How to handle Software/Firmware to be MDR compliant?
I just listened to your webinar about EU MDR. It was quite rewarding as there were few surprices but still some good information.
I have a more specific question regarding software.
Background: We have a unit that cuts out a form in styrofoam which is then filled with a low melting point alloy. This hardend form is the put between the patient and the source of radiation to limit the radiation to certain places.
The unit itself has the technical documentation made. However there are two aspects which I am uncertain how to handle:
1) Software. There is a computer software that receives input from user (from xray etc) and then converts the desired shape to be cut.
2) Firmware. The unit itself has a firmware implmented that receives the data from above software and performs the actual control of the unit.
My question is:
How are these two to be handled in the technical documentation? Most of the standard sections do not apply to software (Biocompatibility to name one).
So.. how to handle Software / Firmware to be MDR compliant .
Information on Certificates such as CoC / CoA or 3.1 certifications
I am looking for more information on supplier documentation, specifically Certificates such as CoC / CoA or 3.1 certifications
I woud like to know if there is a link to the ISO 13485 requiring suppliers to send us these types of certificates.. basically following DIN EN 10204
Economic operator definition
Not really sure whether I address the correct people, possibly this question came up more often.
I distribute medical devices.
The opportunity arises to expand our market and to deliver devices to customers of another company.
We distribute the medical devices, the other company does not interfere at all with the device handling, traceability and follow-up processes (MDR obligations).
They only send an invoice. Does that make them an economic operator with MDR obligations?
Am I correct that if they do NOT touch the device at all with their processes (except for billing) that they will have no MDR obligations as “economic operator”?
