Navigating Medical Device Regulatory Compliance in Austria: Insights on AGES MEA, BASG, and Market Access Requirements under MPG 2021

Regulatory Authority: Austrian Medicines and Medical Devices Agency (AGES MEA) on behalf of BASG.

The Austrian Medicines and Medical Devices Agency (AGES MEA) is the national authority for medicines, medical devices, blood, and tissue in Austria. It was formed in 2012 and is responsible for drug approval, clinical trials, pharmacovigilance, and inspection of medical devices.

The BASG monitors medicinal products and devices on the market, including their efficacy, side effects, production, transport, and storage. It also performs blood and tissue vigilance tasks.

The Austrian Agency for Health and Food Safety (AGES) is a leading expert organization for risk minimization in health, food safety, and consumer protection.

The Federal Office for Safety in Health Care (BASG) is subordinate to the Federal Ministry of Health (BMG) and consists of three members appointed by the Federal Minister.

The AGES MEA provides two members of the Federal Office. The employees of AGES MEA act on behalf of BASG during sovereign execution.

Market Access

Medical devices can only be introduced to the Union market if they adhere to the regulations outlined in the respective European regulations (MDR, IVDR). These regulations encompass compliance with general safety and performance standards, the careful selection and implementation of an appropriate conformity assessment procedure, and the issuance of a corresponding declaration of conformity. The affixation of the CE marking signifies the manufacturer’s assertion that the medical device complies with all relevant requirements.

The manufacturer bears exclusive responsibility for the medical device, encompassing its design and characteristics. The manufacturer defines the intended medical purpose, specifying the type, principal effect, and application of the medical device, and categorizes it within the applicable medical device class. In cases involving medical devices of higher risk classes, the involvement of a notified body is mandatory.
