Central Drugs Standard Control Organisation – Notification dated 11th July 2022
In pursuance of notification No. G.S.R. 102(E) dated 11.02.2020, all non-notified medical devices of Class A & Class B categories are scheduled to enter licensing regime with effect from 01.10.2022
The Manufacturers are required to register their products on the portal (https://cdscomdonline.gov.in/NewMedDev/Homepage#) established for the purpose by CDSCO and to affix the registration number on the label of such registered medical devices.
All manufacturers are advised to apply for obtaining manufacturing license for Class A & Class B medical devices through CDSCO’s on-line portal so that the manufacturing license can be granted by respective State Licensing Authorities after review of the applications and audit (as the case may be) as per stipulated time specified in MDR, 2017 in order to avoid further delay.
CDSCO has also clarified that the quality certificates issued by any other entities shall not be a replacement of licensure to be granted under MDR, 2017 by the competent Licensing Authority. All manufacturers shall have to comply with the licensing requirement and obtain the license as per MDR, 2017, as the said rules do not recognize any such certificates which are not mentioned in it or part of it.
