Bourton-on-the-Water, UK (15th January 2024) – Summit Medical Ltd, a global leader in the provision of quality medical products manufactured in the UK, proudly announces today the successful attainment of the European Medical Device Regulation (MDR) certification.

Securing the EU MDR 2017/745 certificate, granted by the Notified Body SGS Belgium NV, not only signifies the company’s ongoing commitment to maintaining pinnacle standards in quality and patient safety but also exemplifies adherence to its core guiding principles.

Summit Medical is one of a few companies to receive MDR certification and meet the strict European regulatory standards in the development, manufacturing and distribution of medical products which further reinforces the company’s stature as the preferred and trusted partner in the global Orthopaedic accessories market.

Chris Lee, CEO at Summit Medical Ltd, commented:

“Today’s announcement confirming Summit Medical’s achievement of EU MDR certification was a critical milestone for the business and paves the way for our continued growth both through our existing portfolio and the pipeline of new technologies we have been developing. The collective team effort has been incredible, and the award is a ringing endorsement of our commitment to the processes that underpin the quality that Summit places at the heart of everything we do.”

Ensuring compliance with the latest regulatory standards involved meticulous organisational processes such as a robust Quality Management System (QMS), risk management procedures as well as clinical validation and usability of the medical devices, requiring coordinated efforts across multiple functions.

James Halliday, Head of RA / QA at Summit Medical Ltd who guided the MDR certification process, shared his insight into navigating the challenges and a successful outcome:

“Receiving EU MDR certification marks a major landmark in the regulatory history of Summit Medical. Certification represents many months of collaborative effort across the business and is a tangible endorsement of the quality of our processes as well as the safety and performance of our products. Perhaps most importantly, MDR certification facilitates Summit’s ability to grow the EU product portfolio through the introduction of new and innovative solutions in the Orthopaedic sector.”

The MDR certification opens new avenues for Summit Medical to drive ongoing innovation within its product family, allowing the introduction of advanced, compliant medical solutions to the European market.

With the MDR certification granted, the company looks ahead to the future driven by innovation and continued success in the ever-evolving medical devices industry.
