Mandatory Compliance for Medical Device Manufacturers: CDSCO Online Safety Reporting Requirements by Operon Strategist

The Central Drugs Standard Control Organization (CDSCO) in India has implemented new regulations requiring medical device manufacturers to comply with online safety reporting requirements. This mandate is aimed at improving the monitoring and reporting of adverse events related to medical devices, ultimately enhancing patient safety and ensuring the quality of medical devices in the market.

The CDSCO is the national regulatory authority for drugs and medical devices in India, responsible for regulating the import, manufacture, distribution, and sale of medical devices. In recent years, there has been a growing concern over the safety and efficacy of medical devices, prompting the CDSCO to strengthen its regulatory framework.

Under the new regulations, medical device manufacturers are required to report adverse events related to their products through an online portal established by the CDSCO. This online reporting system allows manufacturers to submit information on adverse events in a timely and efficient manner, enabling the regulatory authority to quickly assess and address any potential safety concerns.

The online safety reporting requirements cover a wide range of adverse events, including device malfunctions, serious injuries, and deaths associated with the use of medical devices. Manufacturers are required to report these events within a specified timeframe, ensuring that any safety issues are promptly identified and addressed.
