Mr. Rajiv Nath also highlighted key recommendations to place India among the Top 5 Medical Devices manufacturing hubs worldwide and help end the 80-90% import dependence forced upon us and an ever-increasing import bill of over Rs. 38,837 Crore & promoting growth Indian Medical Device industry:
- Need to Regulate all Medical Devices under a separate Patients’ Safety Medical Devices Law to protect patients and aid responsible manufacturing
- Need to protect Consumers from exploitatively high MRP in Medical Devices by rationalized price controls and aid ethical marketing
- Need to encourage employment and Make in India of Medical Devices and address 80-90% import dependency by a predictive nominal tariff protection policy as done for mobile phones to ensure a vibrant domestic industry & competitiveness and price stability driven by competing domestic players
- Need to incentivize Quality in Healthcare Products in public healthcare procurements by preferential pricing for Q1 e.g. ICMED (QCI’s Indian Certification for Medical Devices) instead of L1 (lowest price) to ensure patients access acceptable quality.
- must ensure importers of Medical Devices are not kept out of the move to cap Trade Margins.
A pro-active policy formulation to regulate Medical Device differently than Drugs should permit free market dynamics to succeed and keep regulations simple, protecting consumers and incentivizing Make in India
“We invite colleagues n fellow exhibitors of this global village to invest in India by technical collaboration, JV, own factories to explore this incredible market place.” concluded Mr. Rajiv Nath.
