RAC Credits

Online Question & Answer Session:
15 February 2019

In March of 2018, China’s State Council unveiled a draft plan to reshuffle government ministries, with the China Food and Drug Administration (CFDA), along with several other administrations, restructured as the National Market Supervision Administration. While China’s medical device regulatory standards are becoming more harmonized with international standards, the Chinese registration process still poses significant challenges for western device firms.

This virtual presentation will provide a high-level summary of the registration procedure in China, including an overview of each step in the process for registering a device or IVD. And, as China is going through a major reform of its regulations, this presentation will attempt to summarize both the challenges and opportunities that the new regulations will bring.
