Medical Device Registration in Chile: ISP Regulations and Compliance

Updated on 26/01/24

Regulatory Authority: ISP (Instituto de Salud Pública or Public Health Institute)

The Institute of Public Health of Chile (ISP) is a public service with management autonomy and legal personality, relying on the Ministry of Health for policy approval and execution. Its mission is to promote and protect population health by strengthening health control through surveillance, authorization, inspection, research, and technological transfer. The ISP focuses on quality, safety, effectiveness, and innovation, with a gender, territoriality, and intercultural focus.

Strategic objectives include ensuring the quality, safety, and effectiveness of health control products, strengthening technical capacities of related organizations, and generating reliable information for decision-making. Knowledge management, applied research, and innovation are also emphasized.

The ISP also aims to improve institutional processes through continuous improvement, standardized work methodologies, and efficient communication. It also strengthens the integrated model of customer management, administration, and finance.

Institutional values include commitment, respect, and integrity. The ISP values responsible officials who practice open communication and responsibility for their duties.

  • CE certificate
  • QMS certificates

  • Letter authorizing a local entity in Chile to be the manufacturer’s distributor and IOR.
  • Risk management report (Class III and IV).
  • Biocompatibility report (Class III and IV).
  • Declaration of sterility, method, and validation certificate (applicable for sterile medical devices).
  • Certification of electrical safety according to IEC 60601 (if applicable).

  • Class III (high risk): 6-12 months
  • Class IV (critical risk): 12+ months

Registration Fee:

  • Registration of the company before ISP – USD 350
  • Registration of regulated medical device (per product) – USD 100

special Labelling Requirements: labelling and descriptions in Spanish

Additional Comments: All medical devices, not just contraceptives, gloves, needles, and syringes, require mandatory registration with the Chilean Institute of Public Health (ISP) before being marketed and distributed within the country. The level of scrutiny and documentation needed for registration depends on the device’s classification based on risk. While X-ray and nuclear medicine equipment may involve additional authorizations from other agencies like the Nuclear Energy Commission (CCHEN), they still require registration with the ISP. It is important to remember that ANAMED is the former name of the ISP, which currentlyoperates under the official acronym ISP and handles all medical device regulations, including registration for all equipment types. Remember, regardless of equipment type or complexity, registration with the ISP serves as a cornerstone of medical device regulations in Chile.
