Re: Does a Company need a US Agent although the Company has affiliated company in USA

Yes, if you are a foreign establishment, you will need a US agent. ...but likely your affiliate company will suffice. ...ask them.

Note: the agent's responsibilities are pretty minimal... basically a go-between you and the FDA (see requirements here). So if you already have a business association with a US-based company (that doesn't mind being your agent), you can avoid going through some overpriced 3rd party.
