European Authorized Representative (EC REP) Services

For medical device manufacturers or importers without a presence in the European Union (EU), securing a European Authorised Representative (EAR) is mandatory for placing devices on the EU market.

European Authorized Representative (EC REP) Services - Overview

Foreign Medical Device manufacturers who do not have a physical location in Europe must appoint a European Authorized Representative (EAR) based in any member countries of the European Union, who are a part of the countries recognizing CE mark. At Freyr, we offer exceptional European Authorized Representative Services (EC REP) to support our clients at every step in their device registration process.

A European Authorized Representative (EAR) serves as a legal entity designated by non-European Union (EU) manufacturers, to represent them in the EU and ensure their compliance with EU MDR (2017/745) and/or IVDR (2017/746). They act as a point of contact between the non-EU manufacturer and the notified body, as well as national competent authorities.
