Information that could be helpful

Pre-owned Medical Devices, About 20% of the imports of medical devices is either used or recycled. When it comes to used equipment, exporters have to supply Moroccan purchasers with these information:

  • Certification of compliance
  • FDA authorization,
  • The technical manual and instructions for the use of the product.
  • Certification of radiological and electro-technical working order
  • The documentation on maintenance done previously.

When a company or its agent has registered medical Devices in Morocco and a third-party is not legally able to import the identical Devices that are in used or refurbished condition without the Devices being subjected to fresh safety inspections. Any piece used, or new medical equipment that is imported into the country the third party has to present the same documents as previously mentioned.
