Medical devices must meet the essential requirements of the of the Medical Devices Directive before they can earn the CE mark and be exported and sold in the EU market. In particular, the information must be made available to the users and patients in their national language(s) regardless of the device use per Article 4(4) of the directive.
Labeling includes any operating instructions, warnings, or precautions to take for a safe use of the device. It also includes sofware UI, marketing information, and critical communications that affect the use of the medical device.
