Sourcing Medical Devices in Asia 2008
Published by Pacific Bridge Medical Ames Gross and John Minot Print Article 2008

Price: $750 Overview: Sourcing manufactured goods in Asia has become common as more and more companies take advantage of the lower overhead, lower labor costs, and increasing technical capabilities available in Asia. Medical device companies can buy and manufacture a wide array of components and medical devices from Asia at significantly lower cost and relatively high quality. This report helps medical device manufacturers and distributors better understand how to source from Asia. The report covers topics such as how to identify manufacturers, how to perform due diligence, what to look for during factory visits, contract negotiations, regulatory requirements, logistics, quality control, and other issues related to the sourcing equation. This report will also offer advice on how to avoid and troubleshoot problems and pitfalls that may arise in the course of the sourcing process, as well as includes information about insurance, payment arrangements, freight forwarding, and customs. In addition, we have included Microsoft Excel spreadsheet templates on CD-ROM with this report that will facilitate your transportation and shipping decisions when dealing with multiple SKUs being shipped in one container. The templates allow you to create your own configurations to determine the optimal number of units/shippers of each SKU to fill a container. After you input the number of shippers of the first SKU, the template will calculate how much space remains in the container to load other SKUs. It will also calculate freight costs for both air and ocean shipments for the various configurations. Click here to view a sample page. This report is 74 pages + CD-ROM. Fully updated for 2008. Also contains information on: Technology transfer Sterilization issues IP protection strategies Major trade shows throughout Asia Investment incentives Illegal practices and how to deal with them Recent medical device sourcing activity in Asia Important government bodies in Asia (product registration, trade and investment promotion) The long run TABLE OF CONTENTS: I.
