CE labeling in the medical field
As part of the CE labeling of medical devices, LCIE Bureau Veritas provides its services from the design phase of your device up to monitoring post market launch. This assistance is based on the two axes required for medical device commercialization:
- Compliance with standards and requirements
- Compliance of the quality assurance system
LCIE Bureau Veritas offers you its expertise and helps you put together a technical file, made up of:
- a general description of the device and its main characteristics
- justification of the class of the device and the rule of the Directive that applies
- the medical claim and announced performance (including its lifespan)
- the manufacturer’s compliance declaration
- technical documentation (design and manufacturing documents), applicable standards
- preclinical test reports, risk analysis and fitness for use
- the instructions for use and labeling elements
- clinical data and post-market monitoring data
A medical device must meet the requirements of the directives that apply to it.
