Global Import Regulations for Pre-Owned (Used and Refurbished) Medical Devices

cover image
World markets for used equipment are important, but some of the most basic facts about them—such as their size, the best markets, and national laws and regulations that affect such trade—are either nonexistent or difficult to come by. This completely revised edition of a report last published in 1996 offers U.S. exporters in one such market, used medical devices, a comprehensive listing of regulations governing this important and growing trade. It is based upon reports from the International Trade Administration's worldwide network of in-country commercial analysts, offering detailed country-by-country entries for 105 markets. Each of the entries includes an in-depth discussion of the regulatory environment for imports of used medical equipment to that country. Related topics—such as sanitary codes, customs valuations, and taxes—that may affect trade in used medical devices are also noted. Most market entries also include lists of government and trade association contacts.
