BBS-Bioactive Bone Substitutes Plc – Inside information – Positive decision received on the product classification, schedule for the quality system approval to be updated

BBS-Bioactive Bone Substitutes Plc has received information today that the Notified Body has approved ARTEBONE® Paste’s product classification as a medical device. The product classification decision is a part of the product approval process. It is particularly significant for the company, as the decision ensures that the CE marking process for the company's first product may proceed in accordance with the targeted simpler and more cost-effective administrative process.

BBS previously (27 March 2023) communicated about certain additional measures that were required by the Notified Body regarding the quality system approval, which the company committed to complete by 1 September. The company has now received additional information about this process, and based on that, the company will likely need additional time to complete the measures. BBS will provide an updated schedule for the approval of the quality system at a later time, but it is the management’s current expectation that this delay in itself should not affect the overall CE marking schedule.

As the company has previously announced, the CE marking process includes two main streams: approval of the quality system and product approval. Obtaining product approval requires cooperation between the Notified Body and the Medicines Agency handling the matter. The Notified Body continues the process regarding both approvals.
