As of July 1, Malaysia mandates device product registration

Medical device manufacturers doing business in Malaysia must deal with a number of new regulations and policies kicking in for 2013. Mysinchew.com reports that companies will have to register their products, effective July 1, which then triggers the ability of a newly established regulatory body to monitor device quality. Separately, government officials are pursuing new actions to help boost local device company competitiveness, including financial incentives and exemption of import duties. Malaysia passed new medical device regulations in 2012.  Story
