Philippines FDA relaunches verification portal for medical devices
The Philippines Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has resumed access to its online Verification Portal which provides comprehensive lists of FDA Licensed Establishments and Registered Health Products. The portal is open access so that the general public can verify whether a medical device placed in the Filipino market is properly licensed and distributed by an authorized dealer. The portal was developed with the aim of giving consumers access to safe and quality products.
Registered medical devices are listed by product name alongside their Certificate of Product Registration/Notification (CPR/NN) number, manufacturer’s name, country of origin, the importer, and registration validity dates. To ensure the accuracy of the information being searched on the verification portal, consumers need to use the correct spelling of keywords such as the establishment name, product name etc.
Licensed Establishments are listed with their respective License to Operate (LTO) as manufacturer, trader, or distributor (importer/wholesaler) together with the validity dates of the licenses granted.
The portal is updated on a weekly basis and can be accessed here: https://verification.fda.gov.ph/Home.php
A list of registered drug products will be posted soon. For questions and clarifications on the list of approved LTOs, CPRs/Notifications and Certifications, clients may send an email to [email protected] with the subject title: Verification Portal_<Name of Center>.
