Who needs a PRRC?

As per the Article 15 of MDR 2017/745 and IVDR 2017/746, and as interpreted by the MDCG Guidance 2019-7, manufacturers are required to have available within their organisation at least one PRRC with proper expertise in the field of medical devices or in vitro medical devices, as applicable, in the European Union. Manufacturers with fewer than 50 employees and an annual turnover and/or annual balance sheet of less than €10 million are permitted to outsource this role to an external provider like S.M.S.
