Medical Device Authority (MDA)

Supported by:

Ministry of International Trade, Industry and Investment Sarawak (MINTRED)

Date: Wednesday, 14 February 2024

Time: 9:00am – 1:00pm

Venue: Borneo Convention Centre, Kuching, Sarawak

MDA was formed as a statutory body under the Ministry of Health Malaysia that is responsible for the implementation and enforcement of Medical Device Act 2012 (Act 737) following the gazettement of the Medical Device Authority Act (Act 738). Implementation of regulatory control under the medical device law is of great benefit to the Malaysian public, as all medical devices that to be placed in our market must demonstrate compliance with safety and performance requirements as stipulated under the Act 737. The regulatory framework provides appropriate control for ensuring public health and safety by ensuring access to safe and effective medical devices while preventing substandard, unsafe, and ineffective devices from reaching the market.

MDA is offering opportunities for participants in Sarawak's medical device industry to engage in face-to-face sessions. These sessions serve as a strategic platform to:

  • help regulators understand the needs and issues of Sarawak's medical device industry when creating regulatory programs, policies, and engagement strategies for effective policy development and implementation;
  • provide focused regulatory advice and guidance to help Sarawak's medical device industry players understand and fulfil their responsibilities, leading to improved compliance outcomes; and
  • explore growth opportunities for the medical device industry in Sarawak with support from the Sarawak state government.
