Challenges of Medical Devices Registration in the EAEU

Here are some of the difficulties that manufacturers or their authorized representatives are most likely to encounter: 

  • Mandatory manufacturing sites inspections: for all high-risk medical products (2b and 3), plus sterile products of risk class 2a require a production inspection
  • Necessity to conduct clinical trials with human participation: they are mandatory for about 45% of medical products (all MD of risk classes 2b and 3, all implantable MD, a new type of MD, fundamentally new materials of manufacture, new and complex techniques)
  • Extended Timelines: the registration process can last from 12 months (for risk class 1 and non-sterile MD class 2a) or even from 28 months (for risk classes 2b and 3, implantable MDs)
