Registering your medical device in Chile requires approval from the Chilean Ministry of Health’s Instituto de Salud Publica de Chile, or ISP. Certification of conformity and quality certification from the ISP are required for market authorization in Chile.
Chile’s medical device regulatory structure is currently being phased in; only a few products such as examination gloves and hypodermic needles currently fall under mandatory controls. The Chilean medical device regulatory system will eventually resemble those in the US, Canada and Europe, and will entail components such as risk-based device classification, quality system requirements and conformity assessments based on ISO standards. Manufacturers currently have the option to voluntarily register their devices before new rules go into effect.
