1st December 2020, the European Commission has made available the Actor registration module. It is the first of six EUDAMED modules.
The actor module is key to accessing and using Eudamed, which allows economic operators to obtain a single registration number (SRN) that provides an EU-wide unique identification.
The actor module also contains a searchable database of registered actors, i.e., economic operators and competent authorities. Actor’s information such as contact information and identification, and for manufacturers, information about the companies’ responsible persons for regulatory compliance can be found on the database.
What are different Actor Roles?
*Distributors are not registered in EUDAMED.
To use EUDAMED, you must have an EU Login account – linked to your work email address.
SRN (Single Registration Number): The Single Registration Number (SRN) uniquely identifies every economic operator in EUDAMED. The SRN is issued once the relevant competent authority has validated the Actor registration request.
The economic operator will get a unique SRN for each actor role. If the economic operator has multiple roles, separated registration requests are required to obtain a different and specific SRN for each actor role.
2 ways to register in the EUDAMED:
1 – REQUEST REGISTRATION FOR AN ECONOMIC OPERATOR
Information required for registration:
2 – REQUEST ACCESS AS A USER OF A REGISTERED ECONOMIC OPERATOR
