Online Medical Device Registration Platform Set to Launch in Malaysia

The Malaysian Medical Device Authority is announcing the launch of its Medical Device Centralised Application System (MEDCAST) for medical device registration applications ahead of final medical device market regulations taking effect July 1, 2013. (Companies will have until July 2015 to transition to the new regulatory system.)

Regulators intend to handle Malaysia medical device registration, establishment licensing as well as export permit issuance through MEDCAST.
