THAIMEDICAL (is our trade brand of glove, face mask and other medical device); our company is among member companies and agencies that hold active roles in the production of medical device in Thailand. The Association was established in 1989 by six founder members all of whom recognized that there were issues that needed addressing concerning the recently implemented VAT system. Since its inception, membership has steadily increased and currently stands at 104 member companies.
The main factors encouraging companies to join increasing demands being placed, both by government and consumers, to keep abreast of the changing quality standards and regulatory requirements covering medical devices worldwide. Over the past two decades the Association has successfully led the industry in these issues despite many initial difficulties in getting all relevant parties to reach a consensus and work together as a single unit. Thaimedical also provides members and non-members with a service of compiling all the relevant documents required for the approval of a Free Sales Certificate (FSC) at the FDA. A current FSC covering any medical device is absolutely essential to enable it to be imported and export in and out of Thailand.
