Import & Marketing of Medical Devices

In order to legally import and market medical device/s in India, a manufacturer needs to be compliant to Indian regulations and legislation. Prior to 2005, no regulations existed for medical devices in India. At present, certain “notified” classes of medical devices, diagnostics and In Vitro Diagnostic (IVD) Devices are regulated under the provisions of the Drugs and Cosmetics Acts & Rules. A comprehensive legislation specific to medical devices is yet to be implemented.

The government of India has notified the requirement for registration of “Notified Medical Devices” through various Gazette Notifications. In other words, all notified medical devices are regulated and require appropriate approvals / licenses from the Indian Drug Regulatory Agency (licensing agency) – CDSCO to enable their import, manufacture, distribution and sale in India.

In summary, medical device manufacturer/s who wish to import and market their products in India, have to register their manufacturing site/s and product/s through their registered office in India, or their Subsidiary or through an Importer or a India based Authorised Agent.
