Assent for Medical Device Manufacturers

Assent can help medical device manufacturers who need data for EU MDR

Section 10.4 of the EU MDR legal text expands the definition of what constitutes a medical device while introducing stricter control measures. 

This section also adds greater requirements for due diligence around the inclusion of certain substances in medical devices. This section defines medical devices in the scope of substance reporting as:

  • invasive devices that come into direct contact with the body
  • devices, or parts thereof, that administer medicines, body-liquids, gases, and other substances to and from the body
  • devices that transport or store medicines, body liquids, gases and other substances to be administered to the body 

These new definitions mean that companies could now be required to demonstrate compliance for previously out of scope products.

Compliance under Section 10.4 of the EU MDR will require companies to collect standardized, validated and usable data from their supply chains to reveal hidden risks. A third-party supply chain sustainability management solution such as Assent’s streamlines EU MDR compliance. Our platform allows you to continuously deep-map and monitors suppliers, products, parts, and parts of parts to get what you need, giving you confidence in your compliance status.
