CDSCO Registration for Urology Medical Device - A Complete Analysis

Before 2006, the Medical Device Industry was utterly unregulated in India. Customers were exposed to various health and life threats caused by unregulated, cheap-quality medical devices. With the increase in the medical device industry, the risks increased. Due to customers’ exposure to unregulated medical devices, CDSCO mandated the registration of medical devices before being manufactured, imported or Sold in India. With this rule, it became mandatory to get registration certificates for notified medical devices. On 3rd September 2020, CDSCO issued a notification that listed 24 Medical devices for registration. CDSCO Registration for Urology Medical Devices has also been included in the list.

CDSCO regulation on Medical Devices in India

The Central Drug Standard Control Organization has broadly classified two categories of Medical Devices based on their registration-

  • Non-Notified Medical Devices
  • Notified Medical Devices

Until the recent notification issued by CDSCO, only 37 notified medical devices were registered in India. Notification 648 (E), published by the Directorate General of Health and Services, listed the following medical devices to be considered drugs from 1st April 2020.  

All the devices that are used as appliances, Instruments, materials, apparatus, implants or any other tool, which is used either separately or along with any another device, accessory or software for use in human beings or animals, and do not achieve the primary intended action in or on animal or human body by any pharmacological, Immunological or metabolic way, but it may help in its intended function or for one or more specific purpose of-

  1. Diagnosis, monitoring, preventing and alleviating any injury or disability.
  2. Diagnosis, monitoring, controlling, alleviating or treating any kind of disorder or disease
  3. Life support and sustaining
  4. Replacing, investigating, supporting or modifying a physiological process or the anatomy
  5. Conception control
  6. Medical Device disinfection

Procedure for CDSCO Registration for Urology Medical Device

To obtain CDSCO Registration for Urology Medical Devices in India, the following steps are followed-

  1. To get CDSCO registration, it must be checked whether the medical device belongs to the notified or non-notified medical device category, along with their risk classification. In the case of a non-notified medical device, the manufacturer must obtain voluntary registration before the given deadline based on its risk class. The CDSCO Registration for Urology Medical Device falls under the ambit of notified medical devices, as notified by CDSCO.
  2. A foreign manufacturer cannot perform any of the official duties in India. Therefore an Indian Authorized Agent (IAA) is appointed on his behalf to carry out all the official duties on behalf of the manufacturer as his representative.
  3. The IAA or Manufacturer must complete all the necessary forms and submit all the required documents to the relevant Licencing authorities to obtain CDSCO Registration for Urology Medical Devices.
  4. After verifying all the documents, the CDSCO License is granted to the applicant after the licensing authority is satisfied.


Getting CDSCO Registration for Urology[1] Medical Devices before they are manufactured, sold or Imported in India is essential to ensure that the customers on whom these medical devices are being used are safe and free from health and life risks. The process of obtaining CDSCO registration for the medical device might be complicated in terms of procedure and rules. Therefore, professional and expert help must be taken to obtain CDSCO Registration for Urology Medical Devices to avoid losses.
