EU: Notified Body Numbers continue to fall

The number of notified bodies designated under the EU’s Medical Devices Directive (MDD) continues to fall due to the new stricter requirements. Currently, there are 58 Notified Bodies under the MDD, comparing to 75 such bodies just in 2013.

A big drop in the number of notified bodies is expected when they have to decide whether or not to apply for re-designation under the forthcoming EU Medical Devices Regulation. Many experts predict that the number of Notified Bodies will fall below 40 after that point.
