Brazil's national regulatory agency, Anvisa, has expedited the process for importing high-risk medical devices (Class III and IV) by agreeing to review devices as soon as its foreign manufacturing site is granted a Certificate of Good Manufacturing Practices (CBPF) by a foreign regulator.
Under the revised procedure (RDC 15/2014), new high tech devices should enter the Brazilian market sooner, since the analysis of the device by the agency can proceed while the manufacturing site awaits CBPF certification.
