Dear Michelle
Please accept my sincere apologies for the delayed response.
In the MDR there is no definition or mention of Sub-Contractor or Job worker or their requirement of getting a license or even ISO 13485. However, as per Fifth Schedule which is similar to ISO 13485:2003, the responsibility and show evidence of control and monitoring of such outsources processes. The clause 1.6 of Fifth Schedule says that the manufacturers of parts or components need to use the clauses as "Guidance" and need not be certified.
In short - No the sub-contractor or Job worker need not get a license, need not have 13485 though preferable
Hope this answers your question
Regards
Sriram

Thanks for your reply.
Does the law as it presently stands today also allow this subcontracting to be allowed for Notified medical devices or will this be allowed only from 1/1/18?

Michelle

This law comes in to effect for the Notified products from 1st Jan 2018. The current rules (CDSCO) applicable for these Notified products does not touch upon this subject at all, for all other products, its free for all now (except for few regulations pertaining to X ray and radiation devices), you can do what you want

Dear Sriram,

Given the difference between the definition of a "Manufacturer" in the Drugs & Cosmetic Act and in EU MDD or MDR would it be possible to allow job workers / outsourcing without a Form 28 Lic.? As per the D&C Act any process or part of process is termed as a manufacture ?

Unless the definition is changed or modified will regulators allow outsourcing ? I doubt.

Views from experts in India would be highly appreciated.

Regards

Michelle
