All Sonosite products marketed in the United States and Canada meet the marketing requirements of the U.S. FDA and Health Canada’s Therapeutic Products Directorate respectively.


Sonosite products meet the applicable requirements of the European Medical Device Directive (MDD) and are therefore CE marked prior to being placed on the market.    

For each Sonosite device marketed within the European Union Sonosite prepares a declaration of conformity with the MDD and applies CE marking. For other countries, outside of the European Union, additional documentation is available.

In addition, the U.S. FDA provides export certificates, known as Certificates to Foreign Government (CFG) that certify a particular device may be marketed in, and legally exported from the United States of America and that the manufacturing plants in which the device is produced is subject to periodic inspections and that the last inspection showed that the plant appeared to be in substantial compliance with good manufacturing practice requirements.
