What are products without an intended medical purpose?

  • Contact lenses or other items intended to be introduced into or onto the eye.
  • Products intended to be totally or partially introduced into the human body for the purpose of modifying the anatomy or fixation of body parts.

Annex XVI to Regulation (EU) 2017/745 includes a list of categories of devices without an intended medical purpose. These are devices based on similar technology as medical devices and used in a similar way but with a non-medical purpose. As the named product groups present certain risks when in use, they are expected to be controlled in accordance with the Regulation and, where necessary, to be subject to a clinical safety assessment.
