Integral drug-device combinations where the medicinal product and the medical device are combined to form an integral product are subject to the EU Medical Device Regulation (MDR) 2017/745.
Where the action of the medical device is principal, application to a Notified Body (NB) is required. Where the action of the medicinal product is principal, Article 117 of the MDR includes a pre-requisite of obtaining an NB opinion prior to submission of the MAA.
Like medical devices applying for CE Mark, the pharma company is required to prepare a submission with evidence of compliance of the device with the GSP, though most pharma companies have not had interactions with an NB in the past.
Join medical device, pharm industry and notified body representatives to explore the technical documentation requirements for CE Mark and for NB opinion and dossier requirements for MA applications.
