The MHRA is the competent authority (CA) for the UK. On behalf of the Secretary of State for Health, we administer and ensure compliance with medical device legislation in England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales.

6 The MHRA meets its functions by:
Investigating allegations received about possible non-compliance with the regulations Operating a proactive inspection programme where manufacturers are randomly selected for inspection by MHRA's own staff. Designating UK notified bodies and audits them. Investigates post-market surveillance reports received from medical device manufacturers.
