Interested in selling your medical device in Singapore? Singapore is a leading healthcare destination in Asia and its regulatory system shares many similarities with the regulatory process in the European Union. Singapore's process is based on the ASEAN (Association of Southeast Asian Nations) harmonization framework, which is largely derived from the former Global Harmonization Harmonization Task Force (GHTF).

However, there are a number of small differences in the classification rules between Singapore and the EU, and multiple registration routes make it challenging to determine the best path to entry for your device. In this white paper, we'll discuss all aspects of the medical device registration process in Singapore, including:

  • Scope of the medical device regulations
  • Classification in Singapore
  • Routes to market entry
  • Grouping
  • Registration requirements
  • Fees and review times
  • Post market notifications
  • Change notifications

Learn all this and more in this in-depth white paper.
