Interested in selling your medical device in Malaysia? General medical and IVD devices are regulated by the Medical Device Authority (MDA) of the Ministry of Health, and the regulatory process closely follows GHTF guidelines.

However, similar to other harmonized medical device markets, medical device manufacturers need to know about and comply with requirements that are unique to Malaysia. In this white paper, we provide an overview of the MDA registration process for medical devices.

You will learn:

  • What are the Authorized Representative requirements for foreign manufacturers?
  • How do we assess and classify our medical device according to MDA guidelines?
  • What is the best regulatory pathway for our product?
  • What are the steps in the registration process?
  • How do we submit our registration documentation to the MDA?

We answer all these questions and more in this 6-page white paper.
