SFDA Requirements for Medical Device Marketing Authorization

The Saudi Food and Drug Authority (SFDA) oversees the regulation of medical devices and In Vitro Diagnostics (IVDs) in Saudi Arabia. To bring medical devices, including IVDs, to market in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA), a Medical Device Market Authorization (MDMA) from the SFDA is mandatory. The SFDA rigorously evaluates MDMA applications before granting approval.
