What is UK Responsible Person?

According to the UK MDR 2019, the UKRP is defined as “a person based in the United Kingdom who acts on behalf of a foreign manufacturer located outside the United Kingdom in relation to the manufacturer’s obligations under the regulations.

The UKRP serves as the UK’s equivalent to the EU authorized representative, with the role of the authorized representative no longer applicable in the United Kingdom.

It is essential that a medical device is placed on the I-JK market by either the manufacturer or a recognized UKRP.

To validate this arrangement, documentary evidence in the form of a mutually signed agreement (letter of designation) between the manufacturer and the UK Responsible Person is required. This agreement should include the names and addresses of both the overseas manufacturer and the UKRP, demonstrating that the UKRP is authorized by the manufacturer and that the devices comply with all relevant laws. The MHRA, on September 18, 2019, published new guidelines outlining the role and responsibilities of the UKRP in regulating medical devices after Brexit.
