China Medical Device Regulatory Strategy Report
China's medical device market, currently in a rapid state of expansion, is regulated by the National Medical Products Administration (NMPA), formerly the China Food and Drug Administration or CFDA. All medical devices must receive NMPA approval before they can be marketed in the country, though Class I devices are subject to a simpler notification process.
Chinese medical device regulations requires local testing for all but the lowest-risk devices, regardless of whether tests have been performed elsewhere, for NMPA approval.
Eligibility for market clearance in China also requires a manufacturer to have prior approval in the device’s country of origin (or country of manufacture).
