Expediting Product Registration at the Thai FDA

Bangkok Post, Corporate Counsellor Column

Before being marketed in Thailand, a wide variety of products must be registered at the Thai Food and Drug Administration (FDA). These products range from food, food supplements, beverages and medical devices to animal health products, cosmetics, hazardous substances, and all types of pharmaceuticals. Due to the large number of product applications that are filed at the Thai FDA and the stringency of registration requirements, registration timelines—particularly for pharmaceutical products—can be very long. What services can be provided at the Thai FDA to expedite receipt of registration licenses?  Three key elements that will contribute to an expedited registration process are document review, regular follow-up, and the guidance of experienced counsel. This article examines each of these elements in order to give companies a head start on securing the timely registration of their products.
