Registration of medical devices following regulations of the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU) is mandatory for companies involved in the manufacture and marketing of medical devices. Safety of medical devices is ensured by additional testing undertaken in the course of registration with the EAEU. Experts test them for quality and compliance with applicable regulations and standards. No medical device is permitted to be marketed, purchased or operated freely without it being compliant with the approved regulation.
The circulation of medical devices is controlled in accordance with the Treaty on the Eurasian Economic Union dated May 29, 2014, Agreement on Common Principles and Rules of Circulation of Medical Devices (Medical Products and Medical Equipment) within the Eurasian Economic Union dated December 23, 2014, other international treaties that are governed by EAEU law, decisions of the Commission, and the legislation of the Member States. In the EAEU, medical devices are registered in accordance with regulations for documentation and assessment of safety, quality and successful operation of equipment. Applicable regulations were adopted by Resolution No. 46 of the Council of the Eurasian Economic Commission dated February 12, 2016.
According to Decree No. 46 of the EEC Council dated February 12, 2016, para. 1 and 4 of Article 38 of the Federal Law “On the Fundamentals of Public Health”, and Decree No. 1416 of the Government dated December 27, 2012, the list of devices subject to public registration includes the following:
Registration of medical devices and cooperating with government authorities may not lead to the desired goal if done on one’s own. The following are common mistakes made by manufacturers when applying to the Federal Service for Surveillance in Healthcare (Roszdravnadzor) on their own:

Starting from January 1, 2022, Russia and other Member States of the EAEU will apply common standards to the registration and certification of devices across all Member States. The registration of medical devices is governed by Resolution No. 46 dated February 12, 2016. According to these amendments, Roszdravnadzor recommends that the following registration procedure be followed:
In pursuance with Resolution No. 46 of the EEC Council dated February 12, 2019 and Order No. 28 of the EEC Board dated March 9, 2021 “On Draft Order of the Council of the Eurasian Economic Commission “On Draft Protocol to Amend the Agreement on Common Principles and Rules of Circulation of Medical Devices (Medical Products and Medical Equipment) within the Eurasian Economic Union dated December 23, 2014”, before December 31, 2021, an application for examination or registration of a medical device could have been submitted in the manner prescribed by the laws of a Member State. The term of the certification varies based on the country where the medical device is registered.
After December 31, 2021, registration certificates received as part of the registration process under the national regulations of Member States will remain valid until their expiration dates as follows:
Any medical device that has been registered according to the regulations of a national legislation system of the host State (except devices that have been registered for an indefinite period and have a certifying document) must be reregistered according to the EAEU regulations. In this case, the registration procedure is to be completed again in the usual manner. However, if a valid Registration Certificate obtained under the national system of a Member State is available, it will be easier to prove the safety, efficacy and quality of a medical device to be registered.
The registered documentation for a medical device may be amended if it was registered under the approved legislation of the host State. To launch the procedure, an application should be filed before December 31, 2026.26.
How long it takes to get a medical device registered in the EAEU depends on the class of, and risk associated with, the device to be registered, number of its versions, and other features of the product. Unlike the registration process under the national system, registration of medical devices in the EAEU is a more complex procedure, involving more rigorous checks of the product by an expert institution and a more complex testing procedure. In this connection, the average duration of the registration process under the EAEU regulations is longer.
