This article was originally published in Clinica
Discussion on a new Thai medical devices act aimed at revising registration requirements and regulations on product liability, are ongoing between the Thai Food and Drug Administration and the medical device industry. The act, which should be in place by 2007, will also list licensing requirements for distributors and manufacturers and corresponding fees, reports the consultancy, Pacific Bridge. Following the eventual implementation of the new act by the Thai ministry of public health, existing registrations will remain in place until their initial expiry dates. However, the act must first be submitted to parliament for approval.
