PMDA / JIS T0601-1 Medical Device Compliance

Manufacturers of medical devices looking to sell their products in Japan must comply with Japan’s PMDA (Pharmaceuticals and Medical Devices Agency). PMDA is a Japanese regulatory agency, working together with the MHLW (Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare). PMDA’s obligation is to protect the public health by assuring safety, efficacy and quality of pharmaceuticals and medical devices.

The good news is that the PMDA and MHLW’s primary medical device standard, JIS T0601-1, is a recognized equivalent of IEC 60601-1. Therefore, a manufacturer who has met the requirements of IEC 60601-1 will have met the requirements on JIS T0601-1.
