European Authorized Representative

When is an EU Authorized Representative (EC REP) required?

The European Union requires any foreign manufacturer who intends to sell their devices in any of the Member States to designate a sole authorized representative (EC REP) with a physical address within one of the Member States. 

The European Authorized Representative will represent your company to the national authorities. And shall register your devices in the electronic system before commercialization. It is the liaison between a manufacturer and an national competent authority. The use of name and registerd address is on all product related labelling. Local Representation/EC Rep EU Rep.jpg?preset=content

A European Authorized Representative may also be known as a EUAR, EC REP, CE REP, EU REP and also an EAR. All of these mean the same; EU Authorized Representative.

Responsibilities of the EU Rep

  • Access and availability of your most up to date technical file
  • Act within 24 hours in case of incidents and Field Safety Corrective Action (FSCA) reporting.
  • First point of contact for the competent authority 
Due to the increased liability under the MDR/IVDR, Qserve has updated her processes and systems to meet the requirements underlying article 11. Qserve will review your technical documentation and provide support where necessary. Together we ensure that your documentation complies with the regulations. Once completed, your devices will be registered. 

Depending on the classification of the device the type of review may vary. For Class I devices the manufacturer has to self-declare the conformity to the MDR/IVDR. For Class II and III, there is Notified Body involved, and only after approval (CE Certificate) the EAR can register the devices.
