Thailand has rolled out new medical device reporting requirements. Companies that have registered their medical devices under the Medical Device Act of 2008 must submit reports to the Thai Food and Drug Administration on any malfunctions related to the medical devices that they manufacture, import or sell, or where the use of such medical devices has caused adverse events for consumers. The new requirements will drive up standards in Thailand's medical device market and help maintain a domestic industry capable of competing in international markets.
