Serious Incidents and Field Safety Corrective Actions

Incidents with medical devices on the market related to accidents and failures defined as serious incidents must to be reported to the Norwegian Medical Products Agency.

Incidents

Incidents involving medical devices refer to any malfunction or deterioration in the properties or performance of the device.

This also includes:

  • Use errors due to ergonomic features
  • Inaccuracies in information provided by the manufacturer
  • Undesirable side effects (MDR – Medical Device Regulation)
  • Harm resulting from a medical decision and actions taken or not taken based on the information or results provided by the device (IVDR – In Vitro Diagnostic Regulation)

Serious Incidents

A serious incident is defined as any event that has directly or indirectly led to, could have led to, or may lead to any of the following:

  • Death of a patient, user, or another person
  • Temporary or permanent severe deterioration in a patient’s, user’s, or another person’s health condition
  • Serious public health threat

Serious incidents involving medical devices in the Norwegian market must be reported to the Norwegian Medical Products Agency (NoMA)

Healthcare facilities are obligated to report serious incidents that are or may be related to the use of a medical device.

Reporting Deadlines

Classification of incident

Deadline

Serious threat to public health

2 days

Death

10 days

Unexpected serious deterioration of a person’s health condition

10 days

Other serious incidents

30 days

The manufacturer can submit a combined preliminary and final report if they have all the necessary information to complete within deadlines. If an incident cannot be determined, it should be reported within the deadline. The manufacturer can submit an incomplete preliminary report and then a complete report after obtaining all necessary information and completing the investigation.

Field Safety Corrective Action

A field safety corrective action is an action that manufacturers can implement based on technical or medical reasons to prevent or reduce the risk of serious incidents when using a medical device that has been placed on the market.

The Norwegian Medical Products Agency is responsible for ensuring that manufacturers implement field safety corrective actions as planned. The agency assesses received reports and monitors their implementation, evaluating the sufficiency of the manufacturer’s measures and determining if additional corrective measures are needed. The agency collaborates with other EU authorities to monitor these actions. When a Norwegian manufacturer reports a safety corrective action, the information is shared with the European network, ensuring other authorities in the countries where the medical device is on the market are informed, in addition to the manufacturer’s own notification.

Additional Comments

  • Audits: An ISO 13485 audit, based on the CE requirements, is required.
  • Technical Local Tests: No local testing is required.
  • Clinical Evaluation/studies: No clinical evaluation studies are required.
