Violation of CE mark - Re-use of single-use Products

#1
We have a competitor that offers single-use class IIB products used prior to and after an ABO-incompatible transplantation. It has been well known for the Company for years that one country, Switzerland, re-use the products. This is a violation of the CE mark. In this case, what is the responsiblity of the Company?

Single use means the device has only been tested and validated for a single use by the manufacturer

If I wish to re-use a single use device, I must guarantee its safety and efficacy and I would also take on responsibility for the safety of the device
