Who Can Act As A Medical Device Authorized Agent?

Distributors or importers of the devices could be Authorized Representatives (AR) for the company in their respective countries. However, this arrangement can cause difficulties when the requirement for multiple distributors or a change in an existing distributor is identified.
The importer or distributor, who has the license for the device might be reluctant to allow a different distributor to sell the device. Manufacturers often end up having to register the device once more since distributors do not give No Objection Certificates (NOC) to allow the transfer of the device’s license.
