The Ministry of Food and Drug Safety (MFDS, Hangul: 대한민국 식품의약품안전처; Hanja: 食品醫藥品安全處; RR: Daehanminguk Sikpumuiyakpumanjeoncheo), formerly known as the Korea Food & Drug Administration (KFDA, Korean: 식품의약품안전청), is a South Korea government agency responsible for promoting the public health by ensuring the safety and efficiency of foods, pharmaceuticals, medical devices and cosmetics as well as supporting the development of the food and pharmaceutical industries. The main goal is to offer people safe foods and drugs.
In April 1996, Korea Food and Drug Safety and its six regional offices were established. It was raised to the status of administration (Korea Food & Drug Administration), in 1998. In 2004, the organization was restructured with the creation of Medical Devices Management Division and Bioproduct Technical Support Division. In March 2013, the organization was again restructured and upgraded to a ministry, receiving its name change.
MFDS is one of the toughest certification to pass. However Moptim received the MFDS on 13th Oct. In the past 4 days, all departments from Moptim have been cooperating closely to ensure that MFDS test passed smoothly.
MFDS on-site auditing is the first time that Moptim has accepted formal Auditing from foreign organizations. It is of historic significance to pass the auditing smoothly. It shows the perfection and adaptability of our management system. It is not only the Moptim product can go to the world, but also the management system behind the product can withstand all kinds of tests and provide powerful products. In the last, we wish Moptim and Moptim’s distributor can be successful in Korea market.
