Submit a Product
IMPORTANT: The data on the submission form incorporates the data supplied by third parties. It is carefully considered in good faith, and rating is granted by a Panel of experienced orthopaedic surgeons. ODEP rating is not designed to be part of the standard Regulatory approval process. Beyond Compliance, ODEP, Northgate Public Services, SCCL (Supply Chain Coordination Limited) and the surgeons involved do not accept liability for any errors or omissions which could affect the final ODEP rating.

Submissions to ODEP can be made using the below pro-forma. These are accompanied by explicit guidelines for completion. It is recommended that trusts view these guidelines and submission templates for each type of product so as to see what was expected from suppliers.
ODEP expect companies to apply for ratings that match the mean follow-up data for the cohort group. It is also expected that implants progress through the ODEP benchmark timelines at 3, 5, 7, 10 and 13 years. Failure to progress will be queried by ODEP and could result in loss of an ODEP rating. To allow for access to Registry data, companies can apply for a 12 month extension to the benchmark timeline to allow sufficient time to obtain the necessary data.
Please note that the ratings awarded to products during the Submissions Review meeting are communicated to companies shortly after the meeting, but only published on the ODEP website after the conclusion of any subsequent Appeal hearing (held usually within 6 weeks from the date of the meeting).
