Saudi Food and Drug Authority (SFDA) concluded its participation in the World Health Exhibition, which was organized by the Ministry of Health at the Riyadh International Convention and Exhibition Center during the period 9-11 October under the slogan "Transformation in the Health Sector".

In its participation, SFDA aims to inform visitors and investors of its most prominent initiatives and programs that encourage investment in the sectors it supervises and enhance the role of the private sector. Among these initiatives are the initiative to develop pricing rules, the initiative to diversify sources, the drug security initiative, and the initiative for unregistered products.

Among the services SFDA provided is the launch of a special track for innovative medical devices and supplies, allocating a technical support team for each factory to respond immediately to all inquiries and clarify the supervisory and regulatory requirements. The team will also provide workshops periodically for facilities and factories to review and discuss the requirements and procedures for medical devices and supplies, including pre and post-marketing stages. The team will carry out orientation visits to a number of factories to explain the requirements and procedures for obtaining a marketing authorization certificate.

In its pavilion, the SFDA reviewed the features and services of "Tammini" application, in which you can search the name of the medical device or medicinal product or scanning the barcode printed on the box to identify alternatives and prices of medicines.
