Registration of medical products in Asia can be a challenging and sometimes demoralizing task. Obtaining local FDA regulatory approval is one of the major "entry barriers" to important medical device in Asia. Most foreign medical device companies try to obtain regulatory approval in Asian countries through:

  • A multinational Regulatory consultancy company in their home country
  • A registration agent in the target market typically located in the capital
  • A "Freelance Regulatory Affair (RA) agent"
  • Distributor in the country

    Class I & II medical device registration in Japan, South Korea and China ¡°officially¡± requires less than one year. However, the reality is very far from that! E.g. thousands of medical devices apply for registration with the Chinese SFDA and close to half never get the approval after years of investment on time and money.

    WHY? The main bottleneck is often not the local FDA requirements, but communication with and management of the registration agents. HMC¡¯s Consultants have the real world experience of obtaining registration of different medical devices with the MOH in Japan, KFDA in South Korea and SFDA in China.
