The State Food and Drug Administration (SFDA), China’s medical device market regulator, has renamed itself the China Food and Drug Administration (CFDA).

The name change reflects the elevation of the agency to ministerial level, which means CFDA now reports directly to China’s State Council and has broader authority to oversee medical device as well as food and drug sectors—potentially leading to a more streamlined and efficient registration process for medical devices in China
