Regulation compliance

for medical devices.

Easily navigate complex and strict regulations. Registrar Corp offers a comprehensive list of compliance services for medical device importers and exporters in the U.S. and abroad.


Medical Device Industry

With over 20 years of regulatory compliance experience, we’ve got the expertise to help you prepare your devices for the U.S. and international markets. Our medical device compliance offerings include FDA and Health Canada registration, licensing and listings, master files submission, and adverse event reporting.

FDA Registration and Listings

Keep up with your annual FDA registration and stay on top of U.S. regulations. We support medical device facilities with FDA facility registration and renewal, registration fees, and medical device listings. If you are exporting products to the U.S., we can also manage communication and represent your facility as your
U.S. Agent.

UDI and GUDID Services

Meet FDA standards for medical device unique device numbers (UDIs). Most medical devices sold in the U.S. must include a UDI for each device characteristic on labels, packages, and in some cases, on the device itself. We’ll guide you through gathering and preparing the required data and submitting your UDIs to the GUDID database, all with one-on-one professional support.


Electronic Medical Device Reporting (eMDR)

Submit adverse event reports quickly and efficiently. FDA now requires medical device manufacturers and importers to submit adverse event reports in electronic format. We will work with you to convert mandatory initial and supplemental adverse event reports into the eMDR format and submit them to FDA’s Electronic Submission Gateway (ESG) on your behalf.

Medical Device Master Files (MAFs)

Need to submit a MAF as part of your medical device application? Registrar Corp’s MAF services include submission preparation and amendment assistance, MAF conversion to electronic common technical document (eCTD) format, and a secure online portal to access your submission documents at any time. We can also submit MAFs for you to 18 regulatory agencies worldwide, including FDA and Health Canada.

Label and Product Review

Assure proper labeling of your medical devices. FDA has a long list of labeling requirements for all medical devices, such as warning statements, adequate instructions for use, and Unique Device Identifiers (UDIs). Our team of regulatory specialists can review and report on your medical device labels and assets, determine which regulations you must follow, and suggest or make recommended updates.

Health Canada

All medical devices meant for commercial importation must meet Health Canada’s robust regulatory requirements. Registrar Corp can help you determine which class your device falls into for regulation purposes, apply for, update, and renew the appropriate license(s), facilitate license fees, and act as your Regulatory Correspondent.


Other Services

Registrar Corp offers additional regulatory services for medical device facilities, including detention assistance, support in case of detentions due to an import alert.

Import Alert Support

Manage Detentions Without A Physical Examination (DWPE) accurately and completely. Registrar Corp can support companies with detained shipments in multiple ways: determine instances of potential noncompliance, document corrective action, and submitting a complete petition for removal.

Detention Assistance

Has your device shipment been detained due to misbranding, adulteration, or an import alert? We can work with you to resolve it by gathering evidence of compliance and assisting you to submit a testimony of admissibility or reconditioning request.
