Vigilance

The medical devices vigilance system is a system for reporting and evaluating incidents and field safety corrective actions (FSCA). This system is primarily aimed at the health and safety of patients, users, and others by reducing the likelihood of an incident occurring again at another location. 

This is done by evaluating reported incidents and, where appropriate, disseminating information which could be used to prevent the recurrence or mitigate the consequences of such incidents.

According to the requirements set out in Articles 13 and 14 of the MDR, if an importer or a distributor based in Romania considers or has reason to believe that a device is exposed to a serious risk or is a counterfeit device, it must inform the NAMMDR about this. If the device in question is also available in other EU member states, the distributor or importer must inform the competent authorities in the affected markets about the potentially serious risk or about the counterfeit device.

CORRECTIVE ACTION REPORT ON SAFETY IN OPERATION

Field safety corrective action is a corrective action taken by a manufacturer, for technical or medical reasons, to prevent or reduce the risk of an incident occurring in relation to a medical device made available on the market. Field Safety Corrective Actions are brought to the attention of the Competent Authorities via the Field Safety Corrective Action (FSCA) form.

Field safety corrective actions may consist of changes to the medical device, recommendations provided by the manufacturer regarding the use of the device and/or tracking of patients, users, etc. or returning a medical device to suppliers. Manufacturers bring field safety corrective actions to the attention of operators/users through Field Safety Notifications (FSN).
