The Food and Drug Administration (FDA or USFDA) is an agency of the United States Department of Health and Human Services, one of the United States federal executive departments. The FDA is responsible for protecting and promoting public health through the regulation and supervision of food safety, tobacco products, dietary supplements, prescription and over-the-counter pharmaceutical drugs (medications), vaccines, biopharmaceuticals, blood transfusions, medical devices, electromagnetic radiation emitting devices (ERED), and veterinary products.

Canadian medical devices regulations require certain types of medical devices to be manufactured under a quality system that meets the requirements of ISO 13485:2003 Medical devices — Quality management systems — Requirements for regulatory purposes. The Canadian Medical Devices Conformity Assessment System (MDSAP) was developed by Health Canada and the Standards Council to implement these regulations.
Manufacturers of Class II, III, and IV medical devices selling their products in Canada must submit their devices for licensing by Health Canada. Health Canada reviews the product for safety, effectiveness, and quality, relying on its Canadian Medical Device Conformity Assessment System (MDSAP) recognized registrars, such as UL, to ensure that manufacturers have an adequate quality system. MDSAP recognized registrars such as UL audit a medical device manufacturer’s quality system to ISO 13485:2016 with the implementation of requirements from the CMDR, then provide a certificate of registration. Manufacturers then use this certificate as part of the submission for a device license with Health Canada. UL, as a MDSAP recognized registrar is able to provide the necessary certification of your quality management system as required by section 32 of the Canadian Medical Devices Regulations (SOR 98/282).
Medical Device Products CE – Marking
CE marking is the mandatory conformity marking for products sold in the European Economic Area (EEA). CE marking indicates a product’s compliance with EU legislation and enables the free movement of products within the European market. By affixing the CE marking on a product, a manufacturer is declaring, at its sole responsibility, conformity with all of the legal requirements to achieve CE marking and therefore ensuring validity for that product to be sold throughout the European Economic Area.
With the European Directive 2007/47/EC of 21 March 2010, it is required for the first time that certain software is to be classified as medical devices, validated and CE-marked accordingly.
Auditdata’s core product AuditBase, is classified as medical device Class I, and with the release of version 4.19.3, AuditBase has obtained CE-Marking.
Medical Device Regulation (MDR)
- As a supplier of medical devices, Auditdata is following the world-wide regulatory landscape. As of 26th May 2021 (New date due to Covi-19), a new medical device regulation (EU) 2017/745 (MDR) will come into force on the EU marked.
- The MDR includes transitional provisions defined in article 120 of the regulation. Auditdata has in accordance with the article extended the validity date of our current EC-certificate 93/42/EEC (MDD) until May 26th, 2024.
- As Auditdata’s EC certificate is valid until May 26th, 2024, we can therefore continue to be marked and sell our existing products in EU until that date. Before that date Auditdata will be compliant and certified in accordance with the new MDR.
