National Medical Devices Promotion Council

National Medical Devices Promotion Council

Indian government is planning to set up a National Medical Devices Promotion Council (NMDPC) under the Department of Industrial Promotion and Policy (DIPP) in the Ministry of Commerce and Industry (MCI).

This announcement was during the 4th WHO Global Forum on Medical Devices at Andhra Pradesh Medtech Zone in Vishakhapatnam.

NMDPC

The NMDPC will be headed by secretary of MCI.

It will aso have representation from health care industry and quality control experts.

The technical support will be provided by Andhra Pradesh Medtech Zone in Vishakhapatnam.

Objectives:

Act as a facilitating, promotional & developmental body for the Indian Medical Devices Industry (MDI).

Render technical assistance to the agencies and departments concerned to simplify the approval processes for MDI promotion and development.

Enable entry of emerging interventions and support certifications for manufacturers to reach levels of global trade norms and lead India to an export driven market in the sector.

Ensure pro-active monitoring of public procurement notices across India to ensure compliance with PMA guidelines of DIPP and DoP.

Importance:

The Medical Devices Industry (MDI) plays a critical role in the healthcare ecosystem and is crucial to achieve the goal of health for all citizens of the country.  The manufacturing and trade in MDI is growing steadily in double digits. However, it is largely import-driven with imports accounting for over 65 percent of the domestic market.

The setting-up of the Council will spur domestic manufacturing in this sector as Indian companies and startups have stated moving towards creating innovative products.
