Simplifying Medical Device Registration with DIGEMID

With a population surpassing 34 million and an increasing health sector budget, Peru emphasizes healthcare system improvement as a national priority. This focus, coupled with regulatory requirements for medical devices, underscores the importance of understanding local regulations for successful market entry.

Device Classification and Regulatory Pathways

Complying with Peruvian Regulations

Regulatory Authority

In Peru, the General Directorate of Drugs, Supplies and Drugs (DIGEMID) oversees the registration and regulation of medical devices. A sanitary registration is mandatory for selling medical devices in Peru, with classification into risk classes I through IV based on a rule-based system that determines the regulatory pathway for each product.


Medical devices are classified according to their risk level, from Class I (low risk) to Class IV (high risk). This classification guides the documentation and procedures required for sanitary registration.

Key Requirements

To market medical devices in Peru, foreign manufacturers must:

  • Appoint a local Holder responsible for the registration of products with DIGEMID.
  • Prepare and submit a comprehensive technical dossier to meet the regulatory requirements for the specific class of the device.
