Risk-Based Classifications for Medical Devices under CDSCO

Medical Devices under CDSCO are generally based on the risks and the medical devices intended use and purpose, and an accurate risk-based classification is done. The medical devices under the CDSCO classification have a larger group of devices, such as stents & cannulas, in more subgroups that are specific.

  • Low Risk (Class A): Surgical dressing, Absorbent cotton wools, alcohol swabs, etc.
  • Low Moderate Risk (Class B): BP monitoring device, Thermometer, disinfectants etc.
