Taiwan Medical Device Regulation

A Comprehensive Overview of Medical Device Registration and Post-Market Surveillance in Taiwan

Updated on: 26/03/2024

Regulatory Authority: Taiwan Food and Drug Administration (TFDA)

 The regulatory system for the safety and quality of food, drug, medical device, and cosmetics is critical to the public health. As these products are intimately involved in people’s daily life and health as well as medical welfare, the Department of Health had been striving to facilitate organizational reform by focusing on consumer health in terms of food and drug safety. 

The safety and quality of food, drugs, medical devices and cosmetics are integral parts to promote the high standard of the national lifestyle, health concerns and medical treatment. TFDA provides a vigorous and comprehensive management system, serving it as a criterion for the whole nation’s health issues and setting it as a point of reference or index for the public health perspective.

Information relating to food and drug safety is released to the public more swiftly, allowing consumers to enjoy quality food and drugs that are safe to use. The TFDA will work to fulfil the vision of safeguarding national health and leading the nation into a new era of food and drug management.
