Medical products refer to a set of medical equipment pieces used separately or together. It includes all the supplementary pieces necessary for the operation of the devices, as well as medical software. Medical products include accessories used for:
- preventive treatment;
- comprehensive treatment;
- disease diagnostics;
- patient rehabilitation;
- research activity;
- maintaining and substituting body functions;
- actions aimed at abortion.
Registration of medical products is obligatory for devices and medications; it allows their further operation and use by healthcare providers.The registration certificates are issued by the Russian Federal Service for Surveillance in Healthcare (Roszdravnadzor). Failure to obtain a registration certificate prevents legal use of any medications and treatment devices. Healthcare centres that have violated the rule are subject to criminal prosecution.
Successful issuing of the certificate is conditioned by thorough document preparation. The applicant can prepare the documents on their own, however this is rather complicated.
Universalpravo offers its clients assistance in the registration procedure assured by highly-skilled experts. Trusting your documents to a professional speeds up and simplifies the complicated process of drawing a file of documents for medical products.
