Sudan Medical Device Regulation

Sudan Medical Device Regulation

Overview on Medical Device registration and Maintenance of Medical Devices in Sudan

Updated On: 23/01/2024

Regulatory Authority:  National medicine and Poison Broad (NMPB)

The National Medicines and Poisons Board (NMPB) is responsible for registering medical products, including medicines and medical equipment. However, there is a duplication of responsibilities between the NMPB and the Sudanese Standards and Metrology Organization (SSMO), which has the mandate to define and adopt standards for imported or built commodities in Sudan.

The committee dedicated to Medical Device Standards is working on adapting internationally recognized standards and publishing them as official documents. The Sudan Atomic Energy Commission (SAEC) plays a crucial role in providing medical device assessment and monitoring services to both public and private healthcare sectors. SAEC focuses on servicing and controlling radiation therapy equipment but also plays a regulatory role. The biomedical engineering department at the Federal Ministry of Health (FMOH) is responsible for policymaking, planning medical devices, and supporting the identification of equipment requirements for new hospitals.

The department also leads the FMOH in creating guidelines and SOPs for medical devices, including product selection, specifications, and procurement justifications.

The National Medical Devices and Systems Foundation (NMSF) is responsible for preventive and corrective maintenance of medical devices, computer systems, and software. It provides after-sales service by trained technicians visiting health facilities, and recruits BMEs to assist hospital management in identifying equipment needs and placing orders for new equipment procurement. The NMSF trains technicians and provides specialized tools to those trained. If in-house or locally available engineers or technicians are unavailable, the NMSF provides services to hospitals. The strategy is to establish workshops for medical device maintenance in certain states, supporting State Ministries of Health and health facilities. During warranty periods, maintenance is done by manufacturers through local agents, and there are no private workshops for medical device maintenance.
