The Medical Device Regulations impose an obligation for the manufacturer to draw up a Declaration of Conformity (or ‘EU Declaration of Conformity’) as a part of the conformity assessment procedure. The Declaration must be issued before the medical device is placed on the market in Europe.
This document on Declaration of Conformity is an evidence that the manufacturer of a CE marked medical device confirm its compliance to the safety and performance requirements of the applicable legislation.
This document on Declaration of Conformity can be considered like a promise on the honor that the manufacturer respect the rules defined. This document represent a legal obligation.
The Declaration of Conformity (DoC) should be created and signed after the technical file is compiled. It should be done after the manufacturer is ready to guarantee that their product meets the requirements of specified EU regulations and other relevant standards. By drawing up and signing the EU Declaration of Conformity (DoC), the manufacturer assumes responsibility for the compliance of the product.
As the product’s manufacturer, you bear the sole responsibility for declaring conformity with all requirements. Before doing so, you must:
Once your medical device bears the CE marking — if the competent national authority requests — you must provide them with all the information and supporting documentation.
Responsible Person: The Declaration of Conformity (DoC) need to be signed by the Management Representative / Person responsible for Regulatory compliance / Owner of the company, which will give him the power and responsibility to say that the product have fulfilled all the applicable requirements.
