Obligation on icons and symbols to display for manufacturers of medical devices

Labels and instructions for use (IFUs) of medical devices must comply with Medical Devices Regulation and IVD Medical Devices Regulation. Based on intended use, mode of operation, and other characteristics, medical devices must include certain icons and symbols either on the labels or in the IFUs, or both. It is important to note that information on medical devices must be in a format correctly understood by every stakeholder in the supply chain of the device.

Class I Medical Devices: Achieve MDR compliance in 9 steps

Classifying a medical device under Regulation 2017/745 (MDR) means considering its intended purpose and inherent risks. Like under the old Directive, Class I devices present a low risk to patients and end users. However, the new Regulation has introduced more rules, leading to some devices being upgraded to Class IIa, IIb, or even III.

To help Class I manufacturers comply with the new regulation by May 26, the European Commission (2021) has released a useful factsheet. The document shows the necessary steps for compliance in a more immediate and user-friendly way, by summarising the MDCG guidance on the same topic (MDCG 2019-15 rev. 1, 2020).

What are the nine steps towards MDR compliance?

The future regulations of medical devices in the United Kingdom

Following Brexit, many changes have been introduced to how medical and in vitro diagnostic devices are placed on the market in Great Britain. At present, the changes involve secondary legislation. The manufacturers can choose to comply with the MD 93/42/EEC, EU MDR 2017/745, or UK MDR 2002 to place devices on the UK market until July 1, 2023.

To improve how medical and in vitro diagnostic devices are regulated in the UK, the Medical Devices Regulations 2002 will soon be amended. For this reason, between September and November 2021, the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) consulted on proposed changes to the future medical device regulatory framework, which aims towards:

  • improved patient and public safety, greater transparency of regulatory decision-making, and medical device information
  • close alignment with international best practices, and
  • more flexible, responsive, and proportionate regulation of medical devices.
The consultation involved responses from 413 individuals and 451 organisations. Considering the responders’ answers, the government responded to all the proposals, summarised in the report from June 26, 2022.
