The Dutch authorities have communicated their position with regards to Brexit through an Emergo by UL article, urging industry to implement their practical advice.
For medical devices and in-vitro diagnostics with CE certificates from UK-based Notified Bodies, they advise that:
- Products already on the EU market before the Withdrawal Date (currently subject to delay from its original 29th March 2019), can continue to make their products available on the EU Market after such date
- Products that will not be available on the EU market before the Withdrawal Date, must transfer to a Notified Body with an EU 27 country before the Withdrawal Date to ensure continuity
For manufacturers located outside the UK, they advise the appointment of an Authorized Representative located within an EU27 country before the Withdrawal Date to ensure continuity.
