Medical Device Registration in Qatar
Regulatory authority: Medical device registration in Qatar is conducted through the Ministry of Economy and Commerce (MEC), followed by an application request to the Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Agriculture (MMAA) for an inspection of the premises (if applicable), since business activities may not be undertaken in certain prohibited areas.
Import controls are applied on sanitary, phytosanitary, and Islamic grounds by means of certificates. A local agent is required and must be registered.
Since February 28, 2011, only medical devices that have obtained a Qatar MEC marketing authorization may be sold unless they had already obtained authorization prior to that date. Moreover, after June 30, 2011 only Qatar MEC-authorized medical devices are allowed to be used within Qatar, while devices in use before that date may continue to be utilized.
Medical devices must be authorized by one of the founding members of the Global Harmonization Task Force (GHTF) to have access to the Qatar market.
