Medical Device Registration in Laos: FDD Regulations and Procedures

 Updated on 26/01/24

Regulatory Authority: Food and Drug Department (FDD)

The Food and Drug Department (FDD) is the regulatory authority in Laos and regulates pharmaceuticals and medical devices.

The manufacturer shall register the drugs and medical products with the (Ministry of Health) MOH to sell in Laos. The MOH is required to issue a certificate stating the drug conforms to legal health standards.

MOH must inspect and analyze drugs and medical products to determine whether they conform to established safety and efficacy standards, prior to registration.

Local Regulation: ASEAN Medical Device DirectivesDrug and Medical Product Law


Class B, C, and D medical devices, whether imported or locally produced, necessitate registration with the FDD, while Class A devices and domestically manufactured medical devices of all classes intended for export only require a formal notification to the FDD.

For medical devices imported and intended for individual use in limited quantities or for exhibition purposes within Laos, registration and notification requirements are waived. However, these devices must not be intended for distribution and must be returned to their country of origin or exported within a specified timeframe.

This exemption also applies to medical devices refurbished for reuse, specifically those eligible for refurbishment and reuse for donation or grant initiatives. The refurbishment process must strictly adhere to the guidelines outlined in the ASEAN Medical Device Directive of 2015.

Locally incorporated importers and drug and medical product manufacturers can handle medical device registration and notification by submitting the necessary documents to the FDD. Medical device registration certificates are valid for five years and can be renewed 90 working days before the expiration date.
