Russian Regulators Preparing New Medical Device Classification System?
Roszdravnadzor, the Russian medical device market regulator, has announced plans to develop a new device classification system based on Global Medical Device Nomenclature (GMDN), suggesting perhaps a regulatory approach more harmonized with international standards than previous Russian registration requirements.
Roszdravnadzor’s announcement includes a spreadsheet of more than 20,000 medical device types and descriptions. Regulators are accepting comments on the proposed system, but have not set firm deadlines or rollout dates as of yet.
Emergo Group’s Moscow office will continue monitoring the situation for additional details on Russian medical device regulatory reforms.
