India: electronic instructions for use

The Ministry of Health and Family Welfare published a notification amending the Medical Devices Rules 2017 so that they now give companies the option to use electronic instructions for use (eIFUs) .

The government’s decision to permit the use of electronic instructions for use for medical devices brings practices in India in line with those of the US and Europe.

The development is in line with the government’s push for digitalization to reduce the use of paper and will improve user’s access to more detailed and up-to-date information.
