Notification and Registration of Medical Devices in Brazil

Leveraging Foreign Regulatory Authorizations for Faster Market Access

Navigating the regulatory landscape for medical device registration in Brazil can be challenging. This service ensures compliance with ANVISA’s requirements, facilitating smooth market entry. ANVISA, the Brazilian National Health Surveillance Agency, governs the classification and regulation of medical devices.

Devices are classified into four risk classes: I, II, III, and IV. Class I and II devices follow a simpler Notificação (Notification) process, while Class III and IV devices undergo the more rigorous Registro (Registration) process. Understanding these classifications is essential for successful registration.

Foreign manufacturers must appoint a Brazil Registration Holder (BRH). The BRH submits the registration application and maintains regulatory compliance, ensuring efficient market entry. This role is crucial for foreign entities to navigate the local regulatory environment.

Key regulatory documents include RDC 751/2022, which details registration requirements and acceptable documentation languages (Portuguese, Spanish, or English). BGMP certification is mandatory for Class III and IV devices, ensuring adherence to Brazil’s Good Manufacturing Practices. Additionally, INMETRO and ANATEL certifications are required for devices using radio frequency or wireless communication.

Utilizing a BRH offers several benefits. It allows manufacturers to enter the market without establishing a local subsidiary, reducing time and complexity. Moreover, it provides flexibility in changing distributors, as the BRH is an independent entity focused on regulatory compliance.

By leveraging expert guidance and understanding ANVISA’s framework, manufacturers can ensure compliance and successful market entry.
