Please Help! Requirements for Declaration of Conformity - Compliance to MDD

Hi Folks,

A basic question at the end o fthe day, (at least for me...)

What exactly are the requirements for the content of the Declaration of Conformity? (Apart from the list of standards used to prove compliance to MDD)?

Appended:I mean compliance to the Medical Device Directive - 93/42/EEC

best regards
t.

Re: Requirements for Declaration of Conformity

what directive(s) are you following?

My company CE Marks to 97/23/EC (pressure equipment directive) and there is an annex detailing the requirements.

Re: Requirements for Declaration of Conformity - Compliance to MDD

The Declaration of Conformity is a legal document which indicates that the manuafacturer or his authorized representative fulfills the obligations imposed in the applicable annex. (product satisfies the essential requirements, products are designed, manufactured and tested in accordance with technical documents)

The name of the manufacturer and address, details of product, conformity assessment route, statement that devices comply and time based control are required to be included.

Re: Requirements for Declaration of Conformity - Compliance to MDD

I would expect to see an individual identified, and signing the document on behalf of the company. It is a legal document after all.

(I would tend to then confirm that the signer actually understood what it was that he/she was signing, but that's another matter!)

Some companies have multiple DoCs, one for each product range, sometimes one for each production batch. There are pros and cons with doing that, but legally it's fine.

Re: Requirements for Declaration of Conformity - Compliance to MDD

...an additional question:

By googling I have found a number of DoCs with the CE-Mark being on the document, normally as part of the title.

Is there any requirement related to this, (or maybe it should not be used there at all) ?

regards

Re: Requirements for Declaration of Conformity - Compliance to MDD

There was a NB-MED Consensus Statement on the content of DOCs, written years ago, but I'm fairly confident it is still okay.

http://www.meddev.info/

Open up the Consensus statement link, the one you want is S/01/99.


As for putting the CE-mark on things other than certified or self-certified devices and their various levels of packaging, strictly-speaking you shouldn't, and that would apply to the DoC.

Whilst Notified Bodies and CAs don't tend to get too excited about stuff like that, it is better to avoid misplacement of the CE mark wherever possible. After all, do you really want to risk getting a regulatory non-conformance issued against your just-printed 10,000 advertising brochures....?

Re: Requirements for Declaration of Conformity - Compliance to MDD

The required content of a declaration of conformity is specified in Annex VII of the MDD 93/42/ECC.

There also two Standards according to this topic:
EN ISO 17050-1, EN ISO 17050-2

Additional information can be found in the [URL="http://ec.europa.eu/enterprise/newapproach/legislation/guide/index.htm"]Blue Guide.
[/URL

And finally notified body consensus statement S/01/99 on “Declaration of conformity” (attached file)
