Key Regulations

Medical Device Regulation (MDR)

Concerning the safety and performance of medical devices, the MDR sets out the standards that products need to meet to be sold in the EU. Risk classification, clinical evaluation, unique device identification, notified bodies, and post-market surveillance are just some of the considerations that need to be met.

All Steroplast products are made to meet the MDR, and we ensure everything we export will pass the relevant checks.

In-Vitro Diagnostic Regulation (IVDR)

Any in-vitro diagnostic devices must meet the IVDR to ensure they are of the right standard of safety, performance, reliability, and general operation standards. Like the MDR, in-vitro products must meet various requirements of evidence-based testing, traceability, and classification to be imported to EU countries under the IVDR.

European Medicines Agency (EMA) guidelines

Specifically concerning the export of pharmaceutical products, the EMA oversees the evaluation, supervision, and regulation of medicinal products sold in the EU. Clinical development, quality assurance and good manufacturing practices, pharmacovigilance, and regulatory submissions and procedures must be considered and met.Are you a pharmaceutical export business? Steroplast Healthcare is fully licenced to sell POM, OTC, and GSL pharmaceuticals and export them overseas. Take a look at our pharmaceutical range.

General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

Designed to protect the privacy and personal data of individuals in the EU and regulate data processing by organisations, GDPR must be recognised in all aspects of exporting to the EU. This is something that comes as second nature at Steroplast Healthcare.

Conformité Européene (CE) Marking

Designed to protect the privacy and personal data of individuals in the EU and regulate data processing by organisations, GDPR must be recognised in all aspects of exporting to the EU. This is something that comes as second nature at Steroplast Healthcare.
