UK Responsible Person For Medical Devices

Attention! Foreign Medical Device manufacturers.

Post-Brexit all foreign manufacturers must register and list the device with MHRA before exporting to the UK. We are designated as UK Responsible Person.

The UK Responsible Person (UKRP) would be the UK equivalent of the EU authorized representative the role of which will then disappear with regards to the United Kingdom. The UK MDR 2002 (as amended by the UK MDR 2019) details about UKRP.


To support his argument, documentary evidence in the form of an agreement between the manufacturer and the UK Responsible Person must be signed. This proof should be in the form of a mutually signed agreement (letter of designation) that includes the firm name and address for both the overseas manufacturer and the UKRP.


This document must indicate that the UK Responsible Person is operating with the agreement of the overseas manufacturer and that the devices being put on the UK market are compliant with all applicable laws. United Kingdom’s Medicines and Health Care products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) On 18 September 2019, published new guidelines regarding the role and responsibilities of the “UKRP” to regulate medical devices after Brexit.
