MEDICAL DEVICE MAKERS GET A BREATHER
From heart-valves to cardiac-stents and orthopaedic implants to internal prosthetic replacements, makers of medical devices in the country have got a two-month reprieve to apply for import and registration of their products. The earlier deadline for medical device makers to submit their applications to the Drug Controller General of India (DCGI) was May 1. The Centre has now extended this by another 60 days (to June 29), following industry representations seeking more time to complete the documentation required to make the application.
