Hi Ajith,

I have gone through the Pakistan's new regulations and there is no mention of "who holds Registration/Enlistment Certificate in Pakistan"?

I really appreciate if you could help me with the answer.

Hello everyone,

I am looking for the regulation/ guidance document which covers the registration of PCR test kit in Pakistan.

1. Do the new regulations in Pakistan covers both IVD and Medical devices or is there separate guidelines available?

I could not find separate regulations apart from this link (broken link removed)

Looking for your response.

Thank you in advance!


The regulations do cover MD and IVD, including classifications.
