A Brief Introduction of Paediatrics and Neonatology

Paediatrician:- A physician who specialises in the health, growth, and development of infants, adolescents, and teenagers is known as a paediatrician. The numerous ailments and disorders that can have an impact on children's health, welfare, behaviour, and learning are well-understood by paediatricians. They also comprehend the connections between various diseases and ailments. Paediatricians can specialise in a variety of fields, including neonatology (the care of new-borns), cardiology (the treatment of heart conditions), or development and behaviour.

Neonatologist:- Doctors and medical professional who diagnose and cure new-borns. They are specially trained for the health needs of a newly born child. Doctors who want to become neonatologists must complete residency and fellowship programmes to receive specialised training. A neonatologist may provide assistance during labour and delivery if the new-born is early, has a major sickness or injury, or was born with a birth defect. A neonatologist may be called upon to assist an obstetrician in your baby's care during your pregnancy if a problem is discovered prior to delivery.

Central Drugs Standard Control Organisation:

India is growing as one of the nation's leading in pharmaceutical business and is among the top ten nations in terms of the pharmaceutical industry. Several factors such as large population, growing health awareness, affordable medical facilities, and better research facilities have given rise to the manufacturing and development of pharma business in India. However, with the increasing scope for the growth of the pharma industry in India, there are possibilities for the sale/purchase of medical equipment & device illegally or without jurisdiction. Therefore, the Government of India has established the Central Drug Standards Control Organization (CDSCO), which is the primary legislative body and has been responsible for the regulation, control, and management of pharmaceuticals and medical devices in India apart from the appointment of the Drug Controller General of India (DCGI), and has conferred the responsibility of undertaking assessment, approval and regulation of further compliances(import, export, sale, distribution) in the matters of medicinal drugs and medical devices(including any existing or any new) drugs/devices in accordance with the provisions of the Drugs and Cosmetics Act 1940.

NOC from the CDSCOConsequently, To date, about 37 categories of medical devices have been regulated or notified as drugs under the Drugs & Cosmetics 1940. While the notified medical devices/equipment need to obtain registration for their manufacture or import in India, the medical devices that are not recognized need to obtain a NOC from the CDSCO.

What is a Medical Device?

According to the latest definition as provided under the Medical Devices Amendment rules 2020, as notified on 11.02.2020. However, taking care of circumstances the government has exercised its powers to include more categories by widening the scope of the definition of “Medical Device” under the Act. It states-

"Devices used in general medical practice such as medical apparatus, instruments, implants appliance, etc., which are either used individually or in combination, and are intended to be specifically applied for human beings or animals and are further intended to obtain the desired function by such means and for such purposes as provided below, but is not intended to meet the primary intended action on human body or animals by any pharmacological or immunological or metabolic means-  

  • Analysis, prevention, observing, treatment, or mitigation of any disease or disorder;
  • Analysis, observing, treatment, mitigation, or support for any injury or disability;
  • Examination, replacement or alteration or support in findings of the anatomy or a physiological process;
  • For supporting or sustaining life;
  • Decontamination of medical devices; and
  • Conception related equipment’s & devices.

Therefore, every manufacturer or importer or both of any medical devices in India shall be required to obtain registration as per the provisions of the Drugs and Cosmetics Act 1940. Any failure to comply with the same may invite legal action including penalty & prosecution under the Act.

Types of Medical Devices in India

Provisions related to the import, manufacture, sale & distribution of medical devices are regulated under the provisions of the drug and cosmetics Act 1945. Under the New Medical Rules 2017, all medical devices have been classified into four different categories depending on their usability & risk involved as provided below. 

Types of Medical Devices in India

  • Class A:- Low-risk devices like a thermometer, tongue depressors, etc.
  • Class B:- Low moderate risk like Hypodermic Needles, suction equipment, etc.
  • Class C:- Moderate high-risk devices like Lung ventilator, etc.
  • Class D:- High-risk devices like Heart valves, implantable devices, etc.

Where Class A & B devices are considered to be less risky and moderate devices, for which the application to manufacture has to be filed to the State Licensing Authority. Whereas Class C &D are considered to be high and very High-risk devices and the application for these has to be filed to the Central Licensing Authority of India.

Eligibility Criteria for Medical Devices Registration/Import

The provisions related to activities such as Import, manufacture, sale, and distribution of medical devices have been regulated under the provisions of the Drugs & Cosmetic Act 1940 & Rules 1945. Therefore, any person/firm/enterprise, etc. holding a wholesale drug license and/or manufacturing license issued under the Drugs and Cosmetics Act, 1940 and Rules 1945 could make an application for Registration and import of medical devices into India.
