UK Responsible Person For Medical Devices
In the year 2019, on September 18th UK MHRA released new guidance regarding the role and responsibilities of the “UK Responsible Person (UKRP)” to regulate medical devices sold in the United Kingdom after a no-deal Brexit. The concept is very similar to European Authorized Representative for Medical Devices and its role for devices sold in the EU. If an enterprise sets itself up as a UK Responsible Person for Medical Devices, the Person would have responsibility for the entire enterprise.
UK Responsible Person Roles & Responsibilities
- UKRP ensure that the declaration of conformity and the technical documents have been established and that, where possible, the manufacturer has conducted an appropriate conformity evaluation procedure.
- Keep a copy of the technical documentation, a copy of the declaration of conformity, and, if applicable, a copy of the relevant certificate for inspection by the MHRA.
- In response to a request from the MHRA, provide the MHRA with all information and documentation required to demonstrate a device’s conformity.
- Forward any MHRA request for samples or access to a device to the manufacturer, and ensure that the MHRA receives the samples or access the device.
- Jointly work with the MHRA to eliminate or, when not possible, reduce the risk posed by devices in any preventive or corrective action.
- Inform the manufacturer as soon as possible about complaints and reports from healthcare professionals, patients, and users about suspected incidents involving a device for which they have been designated.
- If the manufacturer fails to comply with these Regulations, terminate the legal relationship with the manufacturer and notify the MHRA and, if applicable, the relevant certification body.
