Register of Medical Devices – Through 2021, as part of the Brexit changes, medical device manufacturers and/or their UK agents have had to register all classes of devices with the MHRA. Previously only the lowest risk, Class 1 devices had to be registered. This gives retailers and distributors a useful reference to check the authenticity of products they are offered, essentially if the product isn’t registered they should be selling it. ‘Distributors’ are increasingly being expected to perform proper checks on medical devices, as they would for medicinal products. The database can be found at the following link:-
