Medical Devices

The content below is for guidance only. Amazon reserves the right to remove any listing it considers to be inappropriate for sale for any reason.

All listings and products must comply with all applicable laws and regulations. In Singapore, the Health Sciences Authority (HSA) regulates medical devices. “Medical device” is broadly defined and generally includes instruments, machines and appliances that are intended to achieve a diagnostic, preventive, or therapeutic medical function. Examples of medical devices include contact lenses, blood pressure or blood sugar monitoring machines, thermometers, bandages, plasters, walking sticks, and condoms.

Each seller of medical devices must provide a valid (i) manufacturer’s licence, (ii) importer’s licence, or (iii) wholesaler’s licence issued by the HSA, before he/she is permitted to list medical devices. If a seller is not a HSA licensed dealer but the product is registered with HSA and has been purchased from an HSA licenced dealer, an invoice meeting certain requirements (including but not limited to showing the name and address of the licenced manufacturer or distributor) must be provided.

Important: Only medical devices that have been registered with HSA may be listed.
