The marketing approval process for medical devices refers to the process of gaining approval or clearance from regulatory authorities to sell and distribute the devices in various markets. This process involves navigating regulatory requirements, demonstrating safety and efficacy, and sometimes also requires compliance with standards or quality system requirements specific to each market. Country specific post market surveillance procedures are often required to be a part of the company QMS.

CE-marking and/or FDA approval for example, plays a crucial role in ensuring that the devices can be legally marketed and distributed within the European Union (EU)/European Economic Area (EEA) and the US. Approval in the EU or US can also support approval in many other markets.
