If you are planning to open up an ENT Specialty Hospital with Operation Theatre (OT) and Out-patient Department (OPD) setup, you will have to keep all the ENT devices which are necessary for examining the ear, nose and throat of the patients. But before the ENT devices can be purchased by you, their manufacturers are required to get CDSCO registration for the ENT medical devices in India. Only then can such devices be used and purchased by you legally.

 

What are ENT Medical devices?

ENT means Ear, Nose and Throat. ENT medical devices are those devices which are meant for the ear, nose and throat. Some examples of ENT medical devices are audiometer, ear bowls and ENT surgical scope. 

 

CDSCO is the regulatory body for the registration of various medical devices, including the ENT medical devices and comes with various responsibilities such like clinical trials, providing approval for devices, license renewal, inspection of medical devices, etc.

 

Medical devices for ENT requiring CDSCO registration

CDSCO has provided a list of all the medical devices for ENT which require registration. These medical devices have been classified in 4 categories, namely:

  • Class-A Low-risk devices
  • Class-B Low Moderate Risk
  • Class-C Moderate high-risk devices
  • Class-D High-risk devices

Medical Devices of Class A and B are considered to be less-risky & moderate medical devices. The application to manufacture such medical devices must be filed with the State Licensing Authority. Class C & Class D medical devices are considered to be high & very high-risk devices & their application must be filed with the Central Licensing Authority of India.
