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.
