In addition, the portal provides an interface and ease of access for applicants to track the submitted application, query responses and the ability to download permissions issued by the CDSCO.

    Any applications submitted are reviewed and approved/rejected by the CDSCO. The process involves the submission of necessary documents on the online portal. After uploading the documents, applicants must submit a hard copy of the papers to the CDSCO (Medical Device Division) for further approval on the medical device portal.
