Deregulated 573 Medical Devices
The Mexican Health Ministry, through its Federal Commission for the Protection against Sanitary Risk (COFEPRIS), recently published a list containing both health consumables regarded to be of low risk and 573 reclassified products that are no longer considered to be health consumables and do not require a health registration to be marketed in Mexico.
Deregulated products comprise diagnosis agents, hygienic products, first aid products and dental consumables, among others.
This recent reclassification follows a 2011 reclassification when COFEPRIS published the first list of 1,669 reclassified non-medical devices and 96 low-risk medical devices.
