European Authorized Representative Sevices

Is it compulsory for a non-EU medical device manufacturer to appoint a European Authorized Representative (EAR)?

As of March 2010, a Single EU European Authorized Representative (EAR) shall be designated by a non-EU manufacturer of medical devices, as this required by Article 14.2 of the Council Directive 93/42/EEC.  The EAR shall be established (have a registered business) within the EU and shall act on manufacturer’s behalf, for specific designated tasks.

Benefits in designating Cert.Pros as your EAR

  • Signing a legally binding document between the manufacturer and Cert.Pros as EAR is the first step. This legal document is actually a written agreement, which clearly lists and identifies the main duties and responsibilities of both involved parties. 
  • After signing the agreement, the manufacturer issues all required documentation, as this is imposed by our relevant checklist. 
  • Our EAR department carries out medical product registration according to the relevant Directive requirements so that the product can be freely placed on the European market. 
  • Upon request, Certificates of Registration can also be issued
