EUDAMED structure

EUDAMED is the IT system developed by the European Commission to implement Regulation (EU) 2017/745 on medical devices and Regulation (EU) 2017/746 on in vitro diagnosis medical devices.

The new Regulations contain important improvements including a much larger EUDAMED database than the one that currently exists under the Medical Devices Directives (Eudamed2).

EUDAMED will improve transparency and coordination of information regarding medical devices available on the EU market.

The system will be multipurpose. It will function as a registration system, a collaborative system, a notification system and a dissemination system (open to the public) and will be interoperable.

EUDAMED is structured around 6 interconnected modules and a public website:

  1. Actors Registration – to identify all economic operators

  2. Unique Device Identification/Devices registration – to register product specific information

  3. Notified Bodies and Certificates – to form a database of EU certificates

  4. Clinical Investigations and performance studies – to provide collection and analysis of clinical data

  5. Vigilance and post-market surveillance – for Incident reporting

  6. Market Surveillance – Publication of post-market reports from the Competent Authority

The development and implementation of EUDAMED is a high priority for the Commission

The Commission, in agreement with the Medical Device Coordination Group (MDCG), is going to make available the different modules on a gradual basis as soon as they are functional

The module on Actor registration is available since December 2020

The module on UDI/device registration (second module) and the module on Certificates and Notified Bodies (third module) will become available by May 2021. Afterwards, the remaining modules will be displayed as soon as they are functional.
