In August 2016, the Registrar of the Medicines Control Council, Dr J C Gouws, issued guidelines for A Licence to Manufacture, Import, Export or Distribute Medical Devices.

This in effect, is the first practical step towards Medical Device registration in South Africa, after the publication of amendments to the Medicines Act, brining into being the South Africa Health Products Regulatory Authority (SAHPRA), and extension of the remit of the MCC to regulate CAMS, Medical Devices and IVD’s

All companies involved in import, manufacture, distribution or export of Class B, Class C and Class D medical devices and IVD’s are required to apply for Licencing before 1 February 2017.
