Hey ho - Let's talk about Medical device categories - IIa If you create a device the chance that it falls to category II is pretty high. There are two subcategories: IIa and IIb. Find your category takes time and you might need help from a professional, and of course, you have to consult regulations. Due to the new regulation, a lot of category I product switched to category IIa. These are usually simple devices with a BUT. For example: probiotic tampons were a category I devices, they help you maintain your health, if you are a female. But, the regulation changed and states that if a device stays in the body for more than 60 minutes it falls to the category IIa (which is unfair, but we can discuss it in another post). Who would use a tampon that they can use for only 1 hour? Will the company start the categorisation? Maybe, or maybe instead they chose not to call it a medical device anymore. This is a perfect example of a business decision. It depends on you. Maintain the medical device status to keep the nice marketing or not. Before you ask: Condoms are IIb :)
