Thai Medical Device Technology Industry Association
THAIMED was established in 1989 by six founding members and since that time has accumulated a lot of success stories. One such is the establishment of excellent contacts with the MDCD of the Thai FDA thereby enabling THAIMED to provide assistance to members when Free Sales Certificates became a mandatory requirement for the importation of medical devices. Other successes include the lobbying of the Ministry of Finance requesting reductions in import duties and correcting the misclassifications of some medical devices which had led to importers being charged unreasonably high import duties. All of these resulted in health services being made available to the Thai people at lower cost.
