VietNam Independent License Holding
Medical device manufacturers must appoint, and grant Power-of-Attorney to a local, registered company in Vietnam to submit registration applications and act as Authorized Representative (AR). It is possible to use an Independent License Holder as the AR. The Vietnam AR will be responsible for post market vigilance reporting, the proactive traceability of devices on the market, and retention of device history documents. Since the AR does not need to be part of the importing process, manufacturers are able to import products with foreign labels and have local distributors apply the appropriate labeling.
AR responsibilities are non-transferable and products registered under the new rules will be able to be imported by multiple distributors by using the license holders MA licenses and an authorization letter from the license holder.
Appointing a trustworthy Authorized Representative is the foundation of a successful business strategy in Vietnam especially given most manufacturers will want to partner with different distributors in the north (Hanoi) and the south (Ho Chi Minh).
