India (CDSCO)

Draft Rules: India proposes waiving BSE certificates if materials come from negligible risk countries

India has proposed changing its Medical Device Rules, 2017 to waive the need for companies to share certain transmissible disease certificates when sourcing animal products from negligible-risk countries.

Medical devices that use tissues or derivatives from animals that can carry transmissible spongiform encephalopathies (TSE) or bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE) pose a potential risk to humans. That risk has led regulators around the world to impose safeguards since the risk came to light. India is now proposing to selectively lift one of its safeguards.
