Listing Of Devices

Generally, products used in hospitals under professional supervision and Class I devices do not undergo detailed evaluation. However, they are required to be listed. A Listing Certificate will be issued by the agency.  After listing, the devices shall obtain import permit to market devices in the UAE.

Registration Of Devices

Our registration services include site and product registration.

Site Registration

The manufacturing site must be registered if the device manufactured in that Site is being imported to the UAE for the first time. For subsequent devices manufactured in the same site, only device registration is required.

Device Registration

These devices are subject to review by the technical committee and upon approval will be granted a license certificate.
