Introduction to Medical Devices Establishments (MeDVER) Malaysia

In February 2005, a decision was made by the Malaysian Government to regulate medical devices in Malaysia. The Ministry of Health Malaysia is responsible for developing and implementing a regulatory framework to control medical devices in Malaysia. The aims of the medical devices regulation are: -

  • To protect public health and safety
  • To allow patients for earlier access to new technology for early detection, diagnosis and treatment
  • To facilitate trade and invigorate the medical devices industry

Registration of establishments and their medical devices is considered to be the most basic level of regulatory control of devices in the market. This registration system will identify the devices, the responsible party and will facilitate any regulatory activity. What is a medical device?


'Medical device' means any instrument, apparatus, implement, machine, appliance, implant, in vitro reagent or calibrator, software, material or other similar or related article: -

  • investigation, replacement, modification, or support of the anatomy or of a physiological process,
  • supporting or sustaining life,
  • control of conception,
  • disinfection of medical devices,
  • providing information for medical or diagnostic purposes by means of in vitro examination of specimens derived from the human body;


b) Which does not achieve its primary intended action in or on the human body by pharmacological, immunological or metabolic means, but which may be assisted in its intended function by such means.

Essential requirements of safety and performance of medical devices

General requirements: -

  • Design and manufactured that will not compromise the clinical condition or safety of the patients, or the safety and health of the users
