Field Safety Notices - Outstanding Actions

When a field safety notice is issued by a medical device manufacturer on the Irish market, the HPRA seek confirmation from the manufacturer that the required action has been completed. Sometimes, completion of the action is delayed or hampered due to issues experienced by the manufacturer. The HPRA publishes details of field safety notices that have been circulated to the Irish market for which action remains outstanding.
