India Regulatory Services ​


With the implementation of new Medical Device Rules 2017 (“MDR 2017”), Indian medical device regulations have become more streamlined with the global regulatory requirement. In tune with the global practice, the 2017 Rules have introduced a risked based classification system and classified medical devices in to 4 classes A, B, C and D.









India has opted a mixture of US and EU Medical Device Regulatory system. Indian Regulatory Authority, CDSCO has designated some Notified Bodies like EU system. These Notified Bodies audit the quality system of the low risk device manufacture. However, for high risk devices CDSCO have kept the full regulatory control with themselves like US.

  • c. Permission to conduct Clinical Investigation of Medical Devices

India classifies any device which is first time is in India as “NEW DEVICE”. New devices require Clinical investigation permission. Also, claims for new intended use or new population or new material or major design change may also need clinical investigation.
