The Central Administration for Pharmaceutical Affairs (CAPA), Egypt’s medical device market regulator, has published a list of approved reference countries that companies applying for market authorization in Egypt may leverage in their device registration efforts.

The Egyptian medical device registration process requires applicants to obtain Certificates of Free Sale from reference countries including the US, Canada, most European Union member states, Japan and Australia.

CAPA’s publication of its reference country list is part of a broader revamp of the regulator’s website to provide clearer details of Egypt’s registration processes for medical devices and pharmaceuticals.
