Hi
I'm looking for some information in choosing a notified body for a new start up company in the Medical Device area.

Will need ISO9001:2000, ISO 13485:2003, we will be manufacturing Class I medical devices with a self certification of the CE mark.

Got a short list of 3 .

SGS, Bsi,LRQA.

need some contact information and approx costings.

Small company with approx 6 people on start up.

Denis, I was under the impression that Class I devices did not require a NB.

We want to have accrediatation to 9001 & 13485 as a company business management tool. So we're off to a good start already.

We'll need to have a technical file and the essential requirements checklist completed. I know that the Class I non sterile device does not need formal approval, but again we'd like to have our notified body rubber stamp our CE mark - almost as a form of voluntary independant approval.

Since it is not required, would the NB's certificate number still appear with the CE mark?

No notified body number on the CE mark.
Technical file compiled for history and record keeping purposes only.

Hi Denis,

If you look at www.medical-devices.gov.uk, under key topics you will find a document called UK Notified Bodies - this will give you a list and contact details.

It may be that NB's are not interested in class 1 non-sterile, but you can but ask. I think you still need a technical file and will need to register with the MHRA - details again on the web site

Good Luck

Thanks Microbe

Just what I was looking for.
I agree with you (notified body won't really be interested in ClassI non sterile), but the file will exist and we will contact MHRA.

Thanks.
