Dr. Hee-Kyo Jeong
Chair of AHWP

 

 

 

I would like to thank AHWP representatives for entrusting me with the leadership of the Asian Harmonization Working Party (AHWP).
During my term, 2015-2017, I will be fully devoted to making and implementing the AHWP's decisions based on your opinion for medical device regulations to achieve the goal of the AHWP.
Under the strong leadership of Dr. Saley Al-Tayyar, the AHWP has made tremendous progress to present efficient ways for medical device regulations and international regulatory harmonization for the past 3 years.
I am pleased that the membership of the AHWP has expanded to 24 members. In addition, the recently published AHWP Playbook shows an emerging foundation for harmonization of medical devices regulations.
As a new AHWP chair, I will focus on developing technical contents where harmonization efforts are needed, by actively supporting the operation of the AHWP body and the AHWP Technical Committee.
Especially, to facilitate collaboration activities across the region, we must build a close network and shape stronger relation with other organizations while expanding global role of the AHWP.
I believe your kind advice and cooperation will be an important driving force for the advancement of all AHWP members.
 
Thank you.
Dr. Hee-Kyo Jeong
Chair of AHWP
