Vietnam Requires Hospital Testing for First-Time Device Imports

March 18, 2009
Devices that are imported into Vietnam for the first time and that involve a new diagnostic or treatment method must undergo clinical testing in at least three government-designated hospitals. An application for clinical testing must be submitted and approved before the device can be imported, Jade Le Bich, Pacific Bridge Medical’s affiliate partner in Hanoi, said during a webcast on Vietnam’s device market.
