New Brazilian Medical Device Regulations in Effect
New rules covering a wide range of medical device and IVD regulations in Brazil have gone into effect as of October 26, 2015.
As Emergo previously reported, the new ANVISA regulations include RDC 36/2015 and RDC 40/2015 covering cadastro and registro device registrations, and also IN 03/2015 pertaining to IVD families.
New requirements for Brazil Registration Holders (BRH) are also in effect; BRHs must now compile and maintain technical dossiers for all Class I and II devices registered with ANVISA.
A 60-day transition period followed ANVISA’s announcement of the new rules in August 2015.
