Your industry, our focus
Medical Device Market Access
Our international network of accredited electrical and electronics (E&E) laboratories and certifications bodies offer a comprehensive range of testing and certification services for active and non-active medical devices and In Vitro Diagnostic Medical Devices (IVDs) for gaining market access. Conformity assessment with the Medical Device Directive 93/42/EEC and IVD Directive 98/79/EC is offered by our Notified Bodies in Europe.
Placing medical devices onto your choice of global markets is costly and time consuming due to national and international variations in the approvals process. Our extensive expertise means that we have the experience to help our clients gain market access in the most efficient manner.
Eurofins E&E's Medical Device and Medical Electrical Equipment regulatory compliance services can all be accessed by contacting your local Eurofins E&E laboratory.
The CB scheme of the IECEE has more than 50 participating countries which can be accessed using one test report and one CB test certificate, simplifying the process and accelerating your global market approvals process.
A number of our E&E Medical Device competence centers are National Certification Bodies (NCB) under the international certification body scheme (CB Scheme) for Medical Electrical Devices, and additional members of our laboratory network are Certification Body Testing Laboratories (CBTL).
