Italy
REGULATORY AUTHORITY: Devices are regulated by the EU list of Competent Authorities.

CLASSIFICATION SYSTEM: Medical devices are classified according to risk into Classes I, IIa, IIb, III, and IV.

TIMEFRAME: The registration process takes about 4-6 weeks after submission for Class I devices. For the other classes, it depends on the contract with the notified body and the type of device.

LICENSE VALIDITY: Licenses issued in the EU are valid for five years.

AUTHORIZED REPRESENTATIVE: An authorized representative anywhere in the EU is required. 

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION: The Medical Device Directive is due to be changed in 2015.

Any Medical or IVD device that is to be sold in Italy must be registered with the Italian NSIS Database.  Non-European companies are required to have a European representative to take care of the registration process.  An exception is made for Class I devices where the European authorized representative is located outside of Italy, and the device is not made by an Italian manufacturer.
