We are seeking views on amending fees for the regulation of medical devices. Please tell us what you think.
MHRA already charges fees for:
- auditing and designating notified bodies
- registering class 1 medical devices, custom made devices and in vitro diagnostic medical devices
- clinical investigations
We want to know what you think
The fees for auditing notified bodies have not increased since 2010. They neither cover the full audit cost nor the cost of audit preparation work. There is also no fee in place in the UK for the re-designation audits of Notified Bodies.
The fees for the registration of class 1 medical devices, custom made devices and in vitro diagnostic medical devices have not increased since 2010 and do not cover the full cost.
Fees are charged for authorising clinical investigations, but not for the amendment of studies after they have been submitted, which is generating additional work.
The shortfall is being subsidised by the Department of Health therefore we are proposing to increase our fees to cover this.
It is proposed that the new fees will come into force during the financial year commencing April 2017.
