Brazilian Market

Welcome to Brazil

Navigating the Brazilian medical device market is essential for manufacturers looking to expand their reach. At the heart of Brazil’s regulatory landscape for medical devices is ANVISA (Agência Nacional de Vigilância Sanitária), the Brazilian Health Regulatory Agency. ANVISA is responsible for ensuring the safety, efficacy, and quality of medical devices within Brazil.

Recently, ANVISA has made significant updates to its regulations to align with global standards and accommodate the rapid advancement in medical technologies. The key regulation to be aware of is RDC 751/2022, which was introduced to streamline the registration process for medical devices 2. This regulation outlines risk classification rules, labeling requirements, and instructions for use (IFU), along with detailed procedures for notification, registration, amendment, revalidation, and cancellation of medical devices. It serves as a comprehensive guide for manufacturers to navigate the regulatory requirements efficiently.

Additionally, ANVISA has approved a new resolution addressing essential safety and performance requirements for medical devices and in vitro diagnostic devices (IVD), revising the previous RDC 546/2021. This update, reflecting on the advancements in healthcare technology, aims to facilitate manufacturers’ efforts in providing comprehensive evidence and studies to support product registration requests 1.

Moreover, with the introduction of Normative Instruction (IN) 290/2024, ANVISA now acknowledges analyses conducted by equivalent foreign regulatory authorities, such as those in Australia, Canada, the United States, and Japan. This harmonization is a significant step towards expediting the evaluation process, ensuring that safe and effective medical devices reach the Brazilian market more swiftly 3.

In summary, ANVISA’s evolving regulatory framework, especially with RDC 751/2022 and the new safety and performance requirements, marks a significant shift towards global alignment and technological advancement in the Brazilian medical device market.
