Registrations in Great Britain

All medical devices, including IVDs, custom-made devices and systems or procedure packs must be registered with the MHRA before being placed on the Great Britain market. In Great Britain (England, Wales and Scotland), devices must conform to the UK MDR 2002, the EU MDR (until 30 June 2023), or the EU IVDR (until 30 June 2023) in order to be registered with the MHRA. In addition, devices that have been CE marked under the EU MDD, EU AIMDD or EU IVDD will continue to be accepted on the Great Britain market until 30 June 2023 if their certificates remain valid for the EU market under the transitional arrangements in the EU MDR and EU IVDR.

The MHRA will only accept registration of devices from manufacturers where the manufacturer is based in the UK. If the manufacturer is based outside the UK, they must appoint a UK Responsible Person. This UK Responsible Person will then assume certain responsibilities on behalf of the manufacturer as described below in the guidance for UK Responsible Persons, including registering the device with the MHRA.

Where any new registrations or changes to existing registrations are made, a £100 standard fee will apply per application.

Failure to register your devices will mean that you are unable to lawfully place your device on the Great Britain market.

If you are a Northern Ireland-based manufacturer and have already registered your device with the MHRA for the purposes of the Northern Ireland market, it can then be placed on the Great Britain market and will not need to undergo any further registration in Great Britain.

More information on registrations (including fees) can be found in the MHRA’s registrations guidance.
