Nexstim Plc (NXTMH:HEX, NXTMS:STO), the targeted neuromodulation company developing and marketing pioneering navigated personalised, non-invasive brain stimulation systems for the treatment of Major Depression Disorder (MDD), today announces that it has renewed EC certificate for all the company’s systems.
The new certificate covers the NBS System, Speech mapping module, Transcranial Magnetic Stimulator and NBT® System for MDD and chronic neuropathic pain.
The EC Certificate demonstrates that the company’s quality system has been evaluated and has fulfilled the EU requirements relating to a product bearing a CE marking. Nexstim received its first EC certificate in 2006. Renewal of the certificate requires yearly audits of the company’s quality system. The new EC Certificate, and hence the company’s systems CE-marks, will be valid from 11th April 2019 until April 2024, allowing Nexstim to market and sell its systems in the European Union.
Nexstim’s EC Certificate is being issued by Eurofins Expert Services, a company designated to assess whether manufacturers and their medical devices meet the requirements set out in EU legislation.
