The Tanzanian Food and Drugs Authority has announced plans to establish a new regulatory framework for medical devices. Devices will be classified according to the risk-based classification principles of the Global Harmonization Task Force and compulsory registration will be required for all products1. The registration scheme will be phased in, starting in July; it will initially cover a few categories and will slowly expand to cover all products on the market.
