E.A.R. For Medical Device Manufactures

REGULATIONS (EU) 2017/745 and (EU) 2017/746 OF THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT AND OF THE COUNCIL of 5 April 2017 about E.A.R

"For manufacturers who are not established in the Union, the authorised representative plays a pivotal role in
ensuring the compliance of the devices produced by those manufacturers and in serving as their contact person
established in the Union. Given that pivotal role, for the purposes of enforcement it is appropriate to make the
authorised representative, legally liable for defective devices in the event that a manufacturer established outside
the Union has not complied with its general obligations. The liability of the authorised representative provided
for in this Regulation is without prejudice to the provisions of Directive 85/374/EEC, and accordingly the
authorised representative should be jointly and severally liable with the importer and the manufacturer. The tasks
of an authorised representative should be defined in a written mandate. Considering the role of authorised
representatives, the minimum requirements they should meet should be clearly defined, including the
requirement of having available a person who fulfils minimum conditions of qualification, which should be
similar to those for a manufacturer's person responsible for regulatory compliance."


Authorised representative means any natural or legal person established within the Union who has received
and accepted a written mandate from a manufacturer, located outside the Union, to act on the manufacturer's behalf in relation to specified tasks with regard to the latter's obligations under this Regulation.

  • Verify that the EU declaration of conformity and technical documentation have been drawn up;
  • Keep available a copy of the technical documentation, the EU declaration of conformity;
  • Comply with the registration obligations laid down and verify that the manufacturer has complied with the registration obligations
  • In response to a request from a competent authority, provide that competent authority with all the information and documentation necessary to demonstrate the conformity of a device
  • Forward to the manufacturer any request by a competent authority of the Member State in which the authorised representative has its registered place of business
  • Cooperate with the competent authorities on any preventive or corrective action taken to eliminate or mitigate the risks posed by devices;
  • Immediately inform the manufacturer about complaints and reports from healthcare professionals, patients and
    users about suspected incidents related to a device for which they have been designated
  • Terminate the mandate if the manufacturer acts contrary to its obligations under this Regulation
