Effect of a Merger on Acquired Company's Medical Device Licenses

#1
This doesn't seem to be a problem in U.S., Canada, EU, or some other jurisdictions - but in places like Brazil, Latin America, Africa, China and others, it seems like the acquired entity's licenses will become invalid. Then one would need to re-apply and be prohibited from importing during that time.

Any thoughts or experience on this?

If I remember correctly - you can do licenses amendment in China to show ownership transfer.
Generally speaking, the Asians are very sensitive about name changes.

You will need to develop regulatory strategy to address each target market separately.

not fun.
