In order to help industries to tap into New Southbound markets and export Taiwan’s health supplements to Malaysia smoothly, Taiwan Food and Drug Administration (namely TFDA) and the National Pharmaceutical Regulatory Agency (namely NPRA) of Malaysia have reached an agreement through negotiations in September 2017. We carried out the practice that Taiwan’s industries who pass verification of “the secondary tier quality control” and“food expansion verification program” will be issued a certification by TFDA to prove they fulfill the requirements of Malaysia’s traditional medicine and health supplements GMP regulations.   

According to Malaysia’s regulations, Taiwan’s industries export products which are belonged to health supplements of Malaysia’ traditional medicine and health supplements GMP regulations are obliged to meet GMP regulations. Products can be registered in Malaysia only after NPRA assigns people to do inspection in Taiwan or Taiwan’s industries provide a certification in English accredited by TFDA which fulfills the requirements of Malaysia’s traditional medicine and health supplements GMP regulations. However, since last September Taiwan industries who pass verification of “the secondary tier quality control” and“food expansion verification program” will be issued a certification by TFDA to prove that they meet traditional medicine and health supplements of GMP regulations in Malaysia. Then they are able to directly submit applications regarding inspection and registration against NPRA in Malaysia to shorten time and reduce cost of export.    

Until June 2018 there is one company, who benefits from the previous mechanism to export its products to Malaysia. After that, four Taiwan’s companies have passed “the second tier quality control” and “food expansion verification program” and they are going to apply for inspection registration against Malaysia very soon.

TFDA not only helps industries to export products to New Southbound countries smoothly, but also continuously raises the overall quality of hygiene and safety management system in domestic food factories to ensure that manufactures are all able to comply with the relevant regulations of Law Governing Food Sanitation, keep safeguard food safety and sanitation seriously.
