License to Operate Registration


A License to Operate plays an important role to businesses engaged in manufacturing, local distribution, export, wholesale or retail of processed foods, pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, medical devices, hazardous substances or chemicals. Especially to businesses that plan to engage in import, export, marketing or local manufacture of products regulated by the Philippine FDA/ BFAD. 

This is because a duly registered LTO is a primary requirement for applying for Certificates of Product Registration. A lengthy process of acquiring an LTO also delays acquisition of CPR's for your products, therefore, any operation that involves these products are delayed. 

At Philpharma Consulting, we see things in our clients' perspective. And we understand how important time matters and how complicated it is to deal with regulatory agencies, like Philippine FDA/BFAD. That is why we 

  • Assist in determining the classification of LTO to be applied
  • Preparation of documents and technical requirements
  • Outsourcing of a licensed pharmacist, if your LTO application requires one
  • Filing of documents to the Philippine FDA/BFAD
  • Consistent follow-up on the status of the LTO application
  • Assistance during Philippine FDA/BFAD inspection of your establishment/office
