Details Difficulty Healthcare devices were initially registered after a cumbersome procedure which involved inspections of the relevant documents. This was also the case at the time of renewal, as several documents had to be attached again along with the registration renewal request.
Analysis The process had caused difficulties to the healthcare devices manufacturers as it took a lot of time and added more burden on businesses in terms of compliance cost & hassle.
Solution DRAP has now introduced separate simplified forms for renewals and removed the unnecessary requirements by introducing form 6A which requires a little information.
