ASD: legal compliance in medical tourism

Legal compliance in medical tourism is fundamental for all corporations


Written by BL. Fernando Doblado R.


Legal compliance in medical tourism is fundamental for all corporations and they need to know that they must comply with all laws and regulations, permits and authorizations applicable to its business activities.


In the industry of medical tourism it is not an exception, on the contrary it is an activity deeply regulated not only by local laws but by international ones.  CEOs, CFOs, directors, representatives, managers and even employees must meet those laws and responsibilities.


As the legal principle states: ignorantia legis neminem excusat, ignorance of the law excuses no one, that is: a person unaware of the law may not evade liability for violating the law merely because he or she was unaware of its content.

Anyone who has the interest to invest in the creation, for example of a hospital, or operating one, must know the legislations regulating said activities.


Our firm has successfully participated in the creation of hospitals from the acquisition of the land, incorporation of the proper legal entity (entities), the obtaining of all the necessary permits, licenses and authorizations required for the construction, the obtaining of all the necessary operating licenses, to the operation of the hospital, as well as the drafting of all the required agreements and related documents.


Up to this date, ASD has the honor to represent hospitals that have successfully stood out with medical tourism projects that compete with others anywhere in the world
