Medical Device Registration in Liberia: LMHRA Guidelines and Requirements

Updated on 26/01/24

Regulatory Authority: Liberia Medicines & Health Products Regulatory Authority
(LMHRA)

The Liberia Medicines & Health Products Regulatory Authority (LMHRA) is the statutory arm of the Government of Liberia with responsibility to ensure that all medicines and health products circulating the borders of Liberia are safe and efficacious. The LMHRA was established based on provisions of the National Drug Policy for the establishment of a Medicines Regulatory Authority to enact and update medicines regulations to regulate the Pharmaceutical Sector, and establishment of a national quality control laboratory under the Authority. The Authority was officially established on 29 September 2010.

Their role is to protect and enhance public and animal health. They do this by assessing the safety, quality and effectiveness of medicines and health products on behalf of the public to ensure the benefits they provide outweigh any potential risks. Their core regulatory functions and their aims and objectives are expressed in their mission, vision and values.
