In-country representation requirements for medical device companies in Hong Kong

Your Hong Kong Local Responsible Person must have a valid business registration and a legal residence in Hong Kong. Once appointed, your Local Responsible Person interacts with the Medical Device Control Office (MDCO), Hong Kong’s medical device market regulator, to manage your device registration process. The LRP must be empowered by a Letter of Designation from the manufacturer, and acts as liaison between the manufacturer and health authorities, as well as the public.
