Medical Device Regulation (MDR) Certification Services

SGS MDR certification services provide a one-stop solution for your medical devices. Find out more.

The EU MDR 2017/745 came into effect in May 2021. All medical devices certified under the previous Medical Device Directive (MDD) must certify to the new requirements to ensure that they can continue to be sold in the European market. Our MDR certification services provide a one-stop solution for all your medical device certification needs.

We can help you to:

  • Understand the requirements through our internationally recognized training courses
  • Confirm your products meet MDR requirements
  • Acquire up-to-date MDR certification
  • Gain the CE mark for your medical devices to ensure EU market access

We can ensure that medical devices certified under the MDD transition smoothly to the latest MDR certification requirements, which now cover:

  • Broader scope and up-classification rules
  • Tougher clinical evaluation
  • Improved EUDAMED database to enhance traceability and transparency
  • New unique device identifiers (UDIs)
  • Stronger post-market surveillance
  • Reinforced regulatory requirements
  • Regulatory compliance responsibilities at the organization level
