In the case of a non-European Manufacturer it is necessary to appoint a European Authorized Representative.
CE marking is normally required, except for custom-made devices, those intended for use in clinical investigations and IVDs intended for use in clinical assessments. All Medical Devices are subject to registration.
For Class I DMs, prior registration is required with the Competent Authority of the Member State in which the Manufacturer is based.
For Class IIa, IIb and III DMs, the Authorized Representative must notify the Lithuanian Authority of the placing on the market, including the required documentation (technical data, documents certifying the compliance of the devices with the requirements established by the various regulations, etc…).
Authorized Representative or Manufacturer.
