The regulatory system for the safety and quality of drugs, medical devices, cosmetics and food is critical to enhancing public health and industry development. 2019 will see ongoing crucial regulatory system reforms under the authority of the Taiwan Food and Drug Administration (TFDA), such as the introduction of Patent Linkage system in drugs, reforms of acts concerning both cosmetics and medical devices and regulations that could complement integrated sustainability policies in Taiwan. At this event, our guest speaker will give an overview of how the TFDA will proceed to formulate and implement policies in 2019 and further improve administrative efficiency for the benefit of Taiwan residents as well as stimulating foreign investment and trade.
In addition to Director-General Wu, officials from different divisions of the TFDA will be present and interact with members at the lunch. This will provide an excellent opportunity for members to engage with senior TFDA officials, exchange ideas and explore ways to increase cooperation between the ECCT and the TFDA.
This event is open to all ECCT members and should be of special interest to members in Pharmaceutical, Medical Device, Cosmetics and Retail & Distribution committees.
