answer text <p>In leaving the European Union it is in the interests of the United Kingdom and EU to secure a good deal for both sides. One that ensures that patients are not disadvantaged; that the UK will continue to play a leading role promoting and ensuring public health; and that industry must be able to get their products into the UK and EU markets as quickly and simply as possible.</p><p> </p><p>If a deal is agreed by Parliament, then during the implementation period CE marking will continue to be used and recognised for both the UK and EU markets, and UK-based industry will not require an authorised representative established in the EU. UK notified bodies will continue to conduct third-party conformity assessment in the UK and the certificates they issue will continue to be used and recognised for both the UK and EU markets.</p><p> </p><p>If the UK leaves the EU without a deal, the European Commission has issued guidance to industry which says the UK will become a third country, meaning UK-based notified bodies and UK-based Authorised Representatives will no longer be recognised within the EU. The position taken by the European Commission would therefore require UK manufacturers of devices to have an Authorised Representative in the EU in order to continue to supply the EU market.</p><p> </p><p>Certificates issued by UK-based notified bodies will not be recognised by the EU and UK manufacturers who want to place products on the EU market will have to use an EU member state notified body. Once the conformity assessment has been successfully completed, they can place a CE mark on their device and place the product on the UK or EU market.</p><p> </p><p>The Government is in regular contact with the medical devices industry to advise them of the regulatory and export requirements arising from EU Exit.</p>
