Procedure of registration of medical devices, devices for in-vitro diagnostic in Ukraine which is called now – “conformity assessment to Technical regulations” came into force on 01 July 2015.
The sign of conformity assessment to Technical regulations is symbol which putted on the device, pointed in instruction for use or printed on the package.
This symbol on the medical device (MD) is the declaration of the manufacture that MD corresponds to main safety requirements, to human health and environment safety.
There are 3 Technical regulations for conformity assessment medical devices in Ukraine on present moment:
Each Technical regulation describes the conformity assessment routes in accordance with potential class risk of MD, proposing to manufacture the different variants.
For conformity assessment procedure it is necessary to assign the authorized representative (AR). It must be the resident of Ukraine, legal entity. It might be separate firm or distributor. However it is recommended to split the commercial and regulatory activity, as the later is the direct responsibility of the manufacture and defined by quality policy which has not being affected by influence of commercial.
The next step for compliance assessment is the choice of organization which is authorized in this sphere and has the profile relevant to your MD. On this stage the customer would face with first difficulties, as he is not skilled and can’t answer on expert’s questions to understand for himself two main questions: the cost and time of compliance assessment procedure.
There is “simplified” scheme or route of compliance assessment of MD and in- vitro diagnostic devices. It is called self-declaration and it is applied for MD of I class risk (non sterile, non measure) and for in-vitro (non for self-control, out of list “A”, “B” in accordance with Resolution of Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine No.754). However self-declaration does not exempt you from necessity of creation and maintenance of technical documentation in the correct manner (item 3, annex 8 of Technical regulation RCMU No.753).
