This article was originally published in Clinica
Costa Rican importers of biomedical devices and equipment have been granted another six months to register their products under the voluntary regime currently in place. The decision was made in response to concerns expressed by the importers, said the health ministry. The extension of the voluntary registration scheme, as established under Executive Decree 32425-S, gains official status upon the publication of an updated executive decree in the official journal, La Gaceta.
