    To promote the quality and efficiency of good registration management (GRM) for medicinal products and facilitate regulatory harmonization in the Asia-Pacific region, Taiwan Food and Drug Administration (TFDA) hosts ‟2019 APEC GRM Regulatory Science Center of Excellence (CoE) Workshop” from September 17th to 19th, 2019 in Taipei. A total of 21 experts from domestic and foreign regulatory authorities and pharmaceutical industries, such as U.S.A, Denmark, Canada, Japan, Singapore and Taiwan, are invited to share their experiences with and deliver training courses to more than 70 trainees from 12 APEC member economies with regard to the dissemination of the GRM concepts. The total number of participants is expected to be more than 120, including participants from 16 APEC member economies and 1 European Union member state.

    TFDA has long been participating in the APEC LSIF-RHSC to promote the regulatory convergence. In July 2017, TFDA and RAPS Taiwan Chapter were formally regarded as an APEC Regulatory Science Training CoE in the area of GRM. Since then, TFDA has been hosting the training events for the third consecutive year in Taiwan. In the future, TFDA will keep hosting the GRM training courses to achieve the goal of promoting regulatory convergence, capacity development and international cooperation.
