Hi guys!

Does anyone know what information must be included in the CFS? According to MHRA, the content is ''up to you'' and ''depending on the requirements of the export countries''.

Any idea what most countries would be looking for in a CFS?

As far as I know, a CFS (or the like) is always issued in a specific context, ie by a specific issuing country / authority and for a specific need. Those two would define the contents. I do not know of any "generic" CFS contents.

Hi!

From memory, when requesting a CFS from the MHRA, you are requested to fill in an online form which requires only some basic information:
>Name of device in the UK
>Class
>GMDN code
>Indication
>CE Certificate

In the past, I've received the CFS from the MHRA then got it notarised by a notary, legalised from the Chamber of Commerce and whatever countries embassy I'm exporting to. They have been accepted by the countries Health Authority every time like this.

Thanks everyone for your replies!

I was actually wondering how the CFS would be used. So lets say I put the Device Model as brief description, slightly different from that shown on the product packaging and product catalog, excluding the REF no. Would that be okay?

eg: Instead of [Urine Bag 3L, 30cm, NRV Valve, Large Pack] I put [Urine Bag]

This is requested by Thai authorities. And I am not sure if they are going to cross check the exact description of the goods and REF no with the schedule listed on the CFS.

According to MHRA, the contents on listed on the Schedule is dependent on the requirements of the regulatory authorities to whom you are exporting to.

We have submitted Certificates of Free Sale for a number of countries and have listed just the Device Make (Name) and Device Model (Reference Number). Hope this helps.
That's really helpful, thanks! Have gotten any, without REF and just Model Name?
