PRRC

Person responsible for regulatory compliance

Why You Need a Person Responsible for Regulatory Compliance (PRRC) for Medical Devices?

A Person Responsible for Regulatory Compliance (PRRC) is essential for navigating the complexities of the Medical Devices Regulation (MDR) 2017/745. This regulation, which came into full effect in May 2021, mandates that all medical device manufacturers appoint a PRRC to ensure compliance with stringent European Union standards. But why exactly do you need a PRRC?

Firstly, the PRRC is your expert in regulatory affairs, ensuring that your medical devices meet all necessary safety and performance requirements. This role is crucial because non-compliance can lead to severe penalties, including medical device product recalls and market bans. Moreover, the PRRC oversees the conformity assessment procedures, making sure that your products are correctly CE marked and documented.

Secondly, having a PRRC demonstrates your company’s commitment to quality and regulatory excellence. Customers and stakeholders are more likely to trust your brand when they know you adhere to rigorous medical device regulatory standards. Additionally, the PRRC acts as a liaison with regulatory authorities, facilitating smoother inspections and audits.

Furthermore, the PRRC is responsible for post-market surveillance, ensuring continuous compliance even after your product hits the market. This includes monitoring adverse events and implementing corrective actions, thereby safeguarding patient safety and maintaining your product’s reputation.
