No matter what is the classification of your device, and which route to compliance you take, an essential element of meeting the requirements of the medical devices directives is the ‘Technical File’, which is the repository for all the product design, qualification and manufacturing data, including the risk management file, usability engineering file, harmonised standards applied, device labelling and, where applicable, clinical data and sterilization details.
For certain types of device, such as Class III 'general’ devices, active implantable devices and 'devices for self testing’ under the In Vitro Devices Directive, review and approval of the Technical File by a Notified Body is necessary prior to marketing (commonly known as the ‘Design Dossier’ review).
