Register Class D medical device via expedited route

Follow this guide to find out the documents, fees and processing time needed to complete the expedited registration of Class D medical devices.


You are eligible to register your Class D medical device via the expedited evaluation route (EDR) if it is currently approved by at least two of our independent reference regulatory agencies. These approvals must be on the same medical device labelled use that is intended for the Singapore market.

Note: Approvals from EU and TGA will qualify as independent reference regulatory agency approvals only if devices have been reviewed and approved by the respective agencies and not registered based on the Mutual Recognition Agreement (MRA).

Devices not qualified for EDR

The following Class D devices do not qualify for registration via the Class D expedited evaluation route:

  • Active implantable devices (e.g. pacemakers, neurostimulators)
  • Implantable devices in direct contact with the central circulatory system or central nervous system
  • Hip, knee and shoulder joint replacement (e.g. bioactive implants)
  • Devices with a registrable drug in a secondary role
  • IVD devices intended for:
    • HIV testing (screening and diagnosis)

These devices will have to be registered via full or abridged routes only.
