Technical File for Medical Device (MDR)


Technical Documentation so called Technical File for Medical Device is a comprehensive file covering complete information to demonstrate safety and performance of the device against the manufactures claimed intended use. The information given in the Technical Files are structured as per MDR and IVDR requirements suitably to address General Safety and Performance Requirements (GSPR).

Notified body will audit technical files on annual basis to assess compliance with general safety and performance requirements. The Technical File should be developed for all type of device risk class. ( I, Is, Im, Ir, IIa, IIb, III).
