Medical devices in India: good news and bad newsThe folks over at DeviceTalk pointed out that the long-awaited government proposal to issue separate regulations for the domestic medical device industry is likely to get delayed by up to 9 months. Currently, medical devices, according to the definition of the Indian Government, are considered drug and are put under the same regulations as the medicines. This makes it hard for device manufacturers to receive licenses and comply with rules.

There is some good news though: Apparently frustrated by the lack of progress, 150 general and diagnostic medical device manufacturers are forming AIMED (Association of Indian Medical Device), which will work as a single voice to press the interests of the industry. AIMED will push aggressively for regulatory reforms and will seek to help Indian device manufacturers catch up with competitors in China, Malaysia, Taiwan, and elsewhere.
