On 11 March, the Food and Drug Administration (the FDA) issued a public announcement that the FDA provides a fast track channel for business operators who wish to apply for the approval to manufacture or import surgical masks. This is to support the high demand for masks in the country due to the spread of COVID-19 and to facilitate business operators to obtain approvals as the FDA’s first priority.

At this initial stage, the FDA aims to approve the applications within one (1) day, provided that all supporting documents are in good order.
