Reviews of TÜV Nord, a Notified Body in Germany
These are user-submitted reviews of medical device companies describing their experience working with this notified body. This includes how well-organized the notified body was, technical proficiency of the auditor, wait times and cost.
Notified bodies typically work with many different auditors, some of which are freelancers. That's one of many reasons which may lead to strongly varying reviews of the same notified body.
And lastly: Even though some reviews may be negative, the goal is not to rant about notified bodies. We've built this to facilitate the sharing of information between Healthcare companies. The goal is to improve Healthcare by helping everyone bring medical devices to market in a safe, predictable, affordable and fair way.
As manufacturers get to choose their notified body, these reviews should help companies choose one which is fair, well-organized and technically competent.
