UK Responsible Person Service


QCS International is planning to offer a UK Responsible Person Service to manufacturers of medical devices who wish to continue to supply the UK market once the UK has fully departed the EU regulatory structure on 31 December 2020.  This means that QCS would act on behalf of the manufacturer for relations with the regulating authority in the UK.

Details of the service cannot yet be finalised as we await the final outcome of withdrawal arrangements, but the pages here provide you with our current understanding.

UK Responsible person service

The UK has left the European Union with a trade deal that requires non-UK manufacturers to appoint a UK Responsible Person for their medical devices, QCS offer a UK Responsible Person service, that allows us to register your products with the MHRA (MHRA Account no. 11356) .

QCS understand that it is vitally important that non-UK based companies retain access to the UK market. We have made the necessary arrangements to align with stated requests from the MHRA.

The amended UK Medical Devices Regulations 2002 (SI 2002 No 618) (UK MDR 2002) which governs medical devices in the UK, will include these extra registration requirements.

Our UK responsible Person Scheme is headed by our Medical Device Expert, Dr Edward Staunton. We have over 15 years’ experience in the field of regulations regarding medical devices and are at the forefront of regulatory compliance post-Brexit.

Our Service includes:

  • Access to individuals with expert knowledge in regulatory compliance
  • Registration using QCS as your responsible person
  • Vigilance tracking and reporting including communication with relevant interested parties
  • Maintaining document files for questions arising from the MHRA
  • General regulatory correspondence in the UK as required

This service conforms fully with the requirements of the MHRA guidance
