Complying with Taiwan's registration requirements for medical devices

Medical device companies interested in commercializing their products in Taiwan must comply with registration requirements of the Taiwan Food and Drug Administration (TFDA). Pre-market approval is necessary for all classes of medical devices prior to Taiwanese market entry. With a presence in Taipei, we can assist with all aspects of the TFDA registration process, including application preparation and submission and in-country representation.

Medical Device Classification in Taiwan

Properly classifying your medical device is the first step towards registering your device in Taiwan. The Taiwanese regulatory system classifies devices as Class I, II or III depending on risk. Class II and III devices must have home country approval in place prior to Taiwanese registration.

TFDA Registration Application and Dossier Submission

For Class I devices, a registration application must be submitted to the TFDA for approval. Class II and III devices also require the submission of a dossier that includes technical information, product test reports and any necessary clinical data.

Additionally, the TFDA requires applicants to have Quality System Documentation (QSD) certification, prior to registration for many devices.

If you are located outside of Taiwan, you must appoint a Taiwan Agent to manage your device registrations.
