The PFDA has invited representatives from the medical device industry to attend the Virtual Public Hearing on Wednesday 23 June 2021.

This industry consultation concerns the Reference List of Class A Medical Devices only and is the next step in the consultation process following the release of a draft for comments on the List of Class A Medical Devices by the Philippines FDA at the end of April. Read our article from 29 April 2021 to learn more about the proposals.
The List of Class A Medical Devices helps medical device industry stakeholders to determine the appropriate risk classification of their device in order to apply for the correct market authorization; in this instance to apply for a Certificate of Medical Device Notification (CMDN).
A CMDN is the required marketing authorization certificate for all medical device products that are classified as Class A products. In other words, if a medical device is on the List of Class A Medical Devices, then a CMDN should be applied for.
