In the future, medical devices in class IIa (as per 93/42/EEC) must be classified into device subcategories. In the absence of other official documents, the NBOG (Notified Body Operations Group) suggests appropriate subcategories in its document NBOG BPG 2009-3. All NBOG documents and an explanation of the terms of reference of this Group can be found on its website at http://www.nbog.eu.
Devices in class IIb
In the future, devices in class IIb (as per 93/42/EEC) must be classified into generic productgroups – in accordance with the GMDN code. This GMDN code (referred to as "Preferred Term" in the database) can be found on the following website: http://www.gmdnagency.org. This database was designed on behalf of the European Commission and is now required by the regulatory bodies of the Member States. However, to use the database you need to purchase a licence. Unfortunately, we cannot offer either access to or an excerpt from this database.
