Nevertheless, based on typical practices, the duration of the state registration process for a medical device in Kyrgyzstan may extend to approximately 4-5 months.

Import permit:

Foreign-manufactured medical devices and equipment can enter the market of the Kyrgyz Republic following the completion of state registration. The application for registration is open for submission under both the “national” and “centralized” procedures of the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU). Regardless of the chosen procedure, a non-resident manufacturer is required to appoint an Authorized Representative within the territory of Kyrgyzstan. The Authorized Representative, who must be a resident legal entity, assumes primary responsibility for the quality and safety of the medical device. Additionally, they are accountable for handling claims and serve as the primary point of contact between competent authorities and the manufacturer.
