    Exporting medical devices to Peru requires adherence to the country’s registration process overseen by DIGEMID (Dirección General de Medicamentos, Insumos y Drogas), the regulatory authority. Here’s an overview of Peru’s medical device registration process:

    • Registration Requirement: To commercialize medical devices in Peru, registration with DIGEMID is mandatory. This ensures compliance with local regulatory standards and enables market entry.
    • Classification System: Medical devices and In Vitro Diagnostic (IVD) products in Peru are classified based on risk levels (Classes I, II, III, and IV). The classification criteria are aligned with international standards, similar to the European Directive 93/42/EEC, Annex IX.
    • Submission of Application: Companies exporting medical devices to Peru must submit a comprehensive application to DIGEMID, including detailed product information, technical specifications, and manufacturing details.
    • Compliance Evaluation: DIGEMID conducts a thorough assessment of the submitted documents to ensure compliance with Peru’s regulatory requirements. This may involve reviewing quality management systems, clinical data, and manufacturing practices.
    • Inspection: In some cases, DIGEMID may conduct inspections of manufacturing facilities to verify compliance with Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) and other regulatory standards.
    • Review and Approval: Upon successful evaluation, DIGEMID reviews the application and grants approval for medical device registration, allowing the product to be marketed and distributed in Peru.
    • Renewal: Medical device registrations in Peru typically require renewal after a specified period to maintain compliance with regulatory standards and ensure continued market access.

    Navigating Peru’s medical device registration process requires careful attention to regulatory requirements and the timely submission of accurate documentation. Partnering with experienced regulatory consultants can streamline the registration process and expedite market entry for exporters.
