Obtaining a Certificate to Foreign Government (CFG) for Medical Devices

A Certificate to Foreign Government (CFG) is required by many medical device market regulators in Asia, the Middle East and Latin America in order to legally sell your product in their territories. A CFG confirms that your device has been cleared or approved for sale in the US. You must present your CFG to regulators in these markets as part of your medical device registration process. Emergo Group has obtained CFG documents for many clients seeking new markets, and can procure a CFG from US regulators on your behalf.

The process for obtaining a CFG for your medical device

The US Food and Drug Administration issues CFG documents directly to companies with offices in the US. With a strong presence in the US, Emergo Group has the expertise and resources to successfully procure your CFG from the FDA on your behalf.  Markets for which Emergo Group has obtained CFG documents for clients include:
