Technical File for a UKCA mark

What is a Medical Device Technical File for a UKCA mark?

A medical device technical file for a UKCA mark is a set of technical documents that describes a product (medical device). It can prove that the product (medical device) was designed in accordance with the requirements of a quality management system. This is also used to obtain the UKCA mark in the UK and the UK Responsible Person (UKRP) must support you. 

Documentation for UKCA Technical Documentation

At a minimum, medical device technical documentation for obtaining the UKCA mark under the UK MDR 2002 should have:

  • A medical device description and specification section. 

  • Medical device labeling and instructions for use. 

  • Detailed information on design and manufacturing of the medical device.

  • Detailed risk management information of the medical device manufacturer in compliance with ISO 14971.

  • Essential Requirements (ES) for the UKCA marking for the medical device. 

  • Medical device verification and validation information.

  • Medical Device CERs (Clinical Evaluation Report) as per UK MDR 2002.

  • Post-market surveillance (PMS) information of your medical device.
