Malaysia MDA Announces Medcert 2.0 and Email & Website Changes
With effective as of 2 January 2019, Medical Devices Authority will make the following changes:
Malaysia MDA also recently introduced 2 news search engines – one for licensed establishment and the other for registered medical devices under Section 15 of the Medical Device Act 2012 (Act 737). The search engines will now show relevant product information, which was previously not disclosed to the public.
1. Registered Medical Device Search
The search engine recommends the searches to be conducted using keywords involving the Medical Device Name or Registration Number. While the search engine has enhanced convenience for the public to obtain information on medical devices, it currently provides very limited information and processes slowly. Currently, the only information provided by the search engine are the Name of the Device, Registration Number, Name of establishment and the Validity Date of Registration. Information such as the classification, description and type of the medical device are not included.
2. Licensed Establishment Search
The second search engine is the licensed establishment search. It is recommended that the search is conducted using keywords related to the Establishment Name or the License Certificate Number. Information disclosed includes the Name of the Establishment, License Number, Validity Date of License and Type of License.
