Person responsible for regulatory compliance (PRRC)
PLG can support:
- European Union (EU) manufacturers
- EU Authorized Representative for:
- Defining PRRC functions
- Appointing PRRC
- Quality technical agreement (QTA) definition
- Quality management system (QMS) support
Who needs a PRRC?
Every manufacturer and EU Authorized Representative must have a PPRC. Manufacturers are required to confirm that their EU representative has appointed a person who meets PRRC qualifications as outlined in Article 15 of the medical devices regulation. If a company consists of more than one legal manufacturer, each legal manufacturer must appoint its own PRRC.
Outsourcing the PRRC:
PRRC functions can be outsourced through an appropriate quality or technical agreement because the role of the PRRC needs to be included in the quality management system and the PRRC requires access to all main documentation in order to support compliance with procedures, technical documentation, and postmarket obligations.
