The International Medical Device Regulators Forum (IMDRF) has published guidance document WG/N66FINAL:2021, titled ‘Assessment and Decision Process for the Recognition of a Conformity Assessment Body Conducting Medical Device Regulatory Reviews’.

The document explains the assessment process and outcomes, including the method to “grade and manage” nonconformities resulting from a recognizing Regulatory Authority’s assessment of a CAB; and to document the decision process for recognizing a CAB or cessation of recognition. To prevent confusion between marketing review activities performed by a CAB and the activities performed by medical device Regulatory Authority Assessors for CAB recognition and surveillance, in this document, the latter are designated as “assessments.”
