Third-Party Regulatory Approval
As a safety science company, UL has the experience, local contacts and global industry expertise to help you understand and meet regulatory requirements to bring medical devices to market globally.
Some regulatory bodies designate third parties to provide approvals for specific types of products before they are allowed to be sold and/or used in the specific regulator's area of responsibility.
UL provides the health sciences industries with end-to-end regulatory and certification services for global markets, including:
Japan: As a Recognized Certification Body under the Japan PAL third-party program, UL can provide regulatory approvals of qualified devices. And UL-qualified auditors can integrate the Japan Quality requirements into your ISO 13485 audit, saving your customers time and resources.
Europe: Work with local Notified Body auditors -- a Notified Body is an accredited organization recognized by the European Union to audit quality systems and test devices to applicable standards and directives -- to gain an objective and impartial assessment of your quality management system and technical file(s), by using UL as your Notified Body.
