Complying with medical device regulation

Medical devices and diagnostics play a key role in delivering new products that benefit the NHS, the economy and above all, patients. The supply of safe, effective, and innovative medical products is underpinned by a robust regulatory framework.

The Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) is responsible for regulating all medicines and medical devices in the UK while the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) holds responsibility in the US. CE marking is currently required for medical devices in the European Union.

The medical device industry has experienced unprecedented growth over recent years; and changes to the regulatory landscape mean it is vital innovators get the right advice, support and signposting to develop effective and innovative healthcare products. InnoScot Health has a strong record of protecting the interests of NHS Scotland.
