Be Prepared with the Comprehensive Guide to
Surviving a PMDA Inspection

Until recently, you didn’t have to worry about visits from the Pharmaceuticals and Medical Devices Agency (PMDA), Japan’s version of the FDA. Then the country changed the rules, requiring its regulatory body to inspect medical device manufacturers who sell their products there. Now, they routinely inspect facilities, and you have a whole new set of regulations to follow.

Like most countries, Japan has its own GMP guidances, and its inspectors follow a unique set of procedures and documentation requirements. Plus, there are subtleties in language and behavior than can make the difference between passing and failing an inspection.

And failing means seeing your product banned in a nation that makes up 10 percent of the global medical device market …
