The Indonesian government procurement agency, known as LKPP, has invited medical device companies to apply for any existing e-Catalogue contract extensions by July of 2019
India’s Central Drugs Standards Control Organization (CDSCO) has officially added ‘ultrasound equipment’ to the Notified list of medical devices that require pre-market approval in India.
Medical device manufacturers are advised to prepare e-Catalogue applications early and be vigilant for the enrollment announcement. Implementing an optimal pricing strategy will be critical to successful public hospital sales. The e-Catalogue system also increases the importance of independent license holding in Indonesia because there is little room for regional dealer margin under the price scheme.
