The European Commission released a brochure related to European Medical Device Nomenclature (EMDN) issues. The brochure contains information about EMDN that is represented in questions and corresponding answers.
It was decided to create the EMDN as a supporting device that helps in operating the European database on medical devices (EUDAMED) within Medical Device Regulation (MDR) and in vitro diagnostic medical devices Regulation (IVDR) requirements. Manufacturers should use the EMDN to register a medical device in EUDAMED and this information will be available not only to the regulation authority but also to the patients where they can get the description of the device.
Please note that the access to the EMDN is free and available for any interested party. The information from this system can be downloaded as pdf and excel at webgate.ec.europa.eu/dyna2/emdn and on the European Commission’s website.
The European Commission notes that the updated version of the EMDN will soon be released. In the updated version, some suggestions received within online consultation will be considered as well as detected errors will be revised.
The brochure describes the key principles of the EMDN and its structure.
