Let Us Help You Navigate the Japanese Market

Japanese market entry can hold many regulatory and linguistic obstacles. As your Appointed Marketing Authorization Holder (AMAH) or MAH, we can help facilitate the PMDA process. As defined by Japan’s Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare (MHLW), the MAH is a company in Japan that holds the marketing authorization licenses, while the AMAH handles MA holding and QC duties for a Sponsor outside of Japan. Besides, the client to become MAH in Japan can require considerable investment.

As part of CMIC’s end-to-end solutions for market entry into Japan, we provide services to help our clients to gain orphan drug designation, new drug or medical device approvals for distribution and sales in Japan tailored to their needs. For Research and Development in rare disease or intractable diseases, CMIC can support our customers on every step of the way.
