Alan Adcock, partner and deputy director of the intellectual property department, Dr. Atthachai Homhuan, manager of regulatory affairs, and Siradapat Ratanakorn, consultant, in Tilleke & Gibbins’ intellectual property group, will speak at an AmCham Food & Agribusiness Committee event titled “Thai FDA and Department of Livestock Development: Legal & Regulatory Update.” The session will focus on the legislative impact of Thailand’s new Drug Bill, the Animal Feed Quality Control Act 2015, the FDA’s food labeling schemes, and the Licensing Facilitation Act.
Alan will speak on the Licensing Facilitation Act, and he will discuss its effect on government licensing procedures; the introduction of a “licensing manual;” timelines under which officials must grant, reject, or respond to an application; and the creation of a One-Stop Service Center.
Dr. Atthachai will present on Thailand’s new Drug Bill, which will include a discussion on the Bill’s mandatory declaration of drugs’ pricing structures before the patent stage, trade implications, and IP infringement.
Siradapat will discuss the recent developments in the animal feed industry, which foreshadow tighter controls on the registration of animal feed. She will cover the new Animal Feed Quality Control Act 2015 and address the uncertainty surrounding this legislation.
The event will be held at AMCHAM’s Bangkok office on Wireless Road on August 13 at 12 noon. If you would like to learn more, please visit the AMCHAM website.
