Hong Kong Medical Device Application Process
Applicants may submit reference country approval in lieu of undergoing local conformity assessment by a Conformity Assessment Body (CAB), of which three companies are currently qualified: BSI, SGS, and TUV SUD. ISO 13485 or an FDA Establishment Inspection Report is required to demonstrate quality systems conformity.
The application processing time for the MDCO is scheduled to take 12 weeks, however delays are common. There is no processing fee. Successful device applications will receive a listing number and be listed in the MDCO on-line database. Listings are valid for 5 years.
