MDR (Medical Device Rules) Registration

MDR (Medical Device Rules) Registration

MDR (Medical Device Rules) is a set of regulations governing the registration and sale of medical devices in India. The CDSCO (Central Drugs Standard Control Organization) is responsible for overseeing the registration and regulation of medical devices in the country.

In order to register a medical device in India, manufacturers must comply with the requirements outlined in the MDR. These requirements include submitting detailed information about the device, its intended use, and its safety and efficacy data.

The CDSCO reviews this information and may require additional testing or data before granting registration. Once registered, medical devices must comply with ongoing regulatory requirements, including labeling and adverse event reporting.

The MDR also classifies medical devices into different risk categories based on their intended use and potential harm to patients. Higher risk devices require more rigorous testing and documentation before they can be registered and sold in India.
