Thailand: Thai FDA Announces Streamlined Procedures: Exemption of Hard Copy Documents for Regulatory Transactions

Thai FDA has announced exemptions for certain hard copy document submissions to streamline processes and administrative load on registrants. In this announcement, registrants contacting divisions under the Thai FDA authority will no longer be required to furnish hard copies of their ID card, household registration, and company affidavit.

This significant update aims to enhance efficiency and convenience for individuals and companies dealing with the Thai FDA. By eliminating the need for physical documentation in these specific instances, the Thai FDA is fostering a more accessible and user-friendly environment for registrants.

This announcement will take effect on May 1, 2024. Further information can be found in the following announcement in Thai:
