Registration of Drugs (Poison & Non-Poison Drug) requires proof of stability, efficacy, quality, safety and are subjected to stringent screening and testing as well as regular and random post-marketing surveillance and testing.

The process for registering the Drug as follow:-
1. Pre-Registration Ingredient Assessment Before the product can be registered with our MOH, each and every ingredient must be assessed to make sure the active ingredients and/or excipients are permissible to be used and do not over the limit determined by our MOH.

2. Drug Registration

MOH will take about 5-6 months to assess the documents submitted to them. If every requirement is complied and there is no further query / information needed, then, the approval letter / MAL will be issued.

3. Importer’s License Application (For those who have yet to obtain the drug importer’s license only) After the grant of MAL no., your company needs to apply an importer’s license and our MOH will take approximately another 3 months to process the application. You are only entitled to import the Drug products after the approval of the importer’s license.
