Additional Comments

The Latvian government has adopted two new regulations on medical devices, which came into effect on May 25, 2017, replacing existing Directives. The new rules will only apply after a transitional period, three years after the Regulation on medical devices (spring 2020) and five years after the Regulation on in vitro diagnostic medical devices (spring 2022). 

The current legislation requires manufacturers or their authorized representatives to submit a statement to the State Agency of Medicines before placing class IIa, IIb, and III medical devices, active implantable medical devices, and IVD medical devices on the Latvian market. Class I and IVD medical devices are not mandatory. 

If an authorized representative has a place of business in Latvia, they must provide the Agency with notification information and any changes. The State Agency of Medicines will receive and store information about manufacturers and their medical devices, review and store the information, and perform medical device vigilance.
