Basic Medical Device Regulatory Introduction: Key Challenges and Solutions in Asia

Presented by SGInnovate and Asia Regulatory Professional Association

Medical devices have evolved to be a critical area within the Healthcare sector. According to the Health Sciences Authority (HSA), medical devices cover over 8000 types of products, ranging from simple bandages to life maintaining implantable devices, and minimally invasive surgery equipment. Singapore, for example, has three phases of implementation for regulatory control of medical devices to minimise disruption of the supply chain distribution and ensure sufficient time for companies to register their devices and meet the requirements.

Navigate through the different phases of medical device regulations with this workshop as we dive into the global and regional regulatory environment.

In this course, participants will learn:

  • The definition and classification of medical devices
  • The global and regional regulatory environment
  • The requirements in Asian countries
