Australia Medical Devices Regulations
A manufacturer who is willing to manufacture, import, sell or distribute medical devices in European Union (EU), should acquire or apply for relevant CE certification for that medical device. A CE mark accredits the medical device with the regulations laid and accepted by the EU and enables commercialization of the product in the European member states. In parallel, the manufacturer will be responsible for maintaining regulatory compliance QMS and making sure product is bearing the relevant CE mark.
Classification and Registration on Medical Devices and IVD in Australia
Medical devices are separated into 5 classes: Class I, Class IIa, Class IIb, Class III, and Active Implantable Medical Devices (AIMD). In Vitro diagnostic devices (IVD) are divided into four separate classes: Class I, Class II, Class III, and Class IV.
There are three documents that are required to register a medical device in Australia: a conformity assessment certificate which can be issued by TGA, a Declaration of Conformity, and a submission to include the medical device in the Australian Register of Therapeutic Goods(ARTG).
