New online registration for medical devices

The Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) has announced that its Devices Online Registration System (DORS) will be live by 11th February 2015 as part of a move towards digital services.

The MHRA website last week moved to the centralised domain, introducing an improved feedback service and a design overhaul “so it is easier and clearer to understand”.

Once the DORS is live a range of medical devices can be registered online including class I medical devices; systems and procedure packs; custom made medical devices; custom made active implantable devices; in vitro diagnostic devices online.

In addition, users will be able to manage their details directly online.

The online registration system will be live for three months and after 11th May 2015 the MHRA will stop accepting paper registrations and all users will have to register online using DORS.

New registrations will incur a fee of £70 and for making certain alterations; however, users that are already registered will online have to create an online account to make changes to details or when registering a new device.
