China’s regulatory framework for medical devices is undergoing radical changes. The country’s new leaders have recognized that the regulations for supervision and administration of medical devices are far from perfect along with rapid population growth and thriving economy over the past 30 years. Chinese state council issued the latest “Regulations for the Supervision and Administration of Medical Devices” on February 12, 2014, which has come into force as of June 1, 2014. Before long, China Food and Drug Administration (hereafter called as CFDA) issued the latest “Measures for the Administration of Medical Device Registration”, which has come into force as of October 1, 2014.The overseas medical devices exporting into China market are subject to administration of overall new regulations on medical device registration since October 1, 2014.



In 2009, the Chinese government vigorously launched “China’s Health-Care Reform”, developed an ambitious blueprint, in which health care system covered about 1.2 billion people by 2011. Along with sustained economic and population growth, Chinese healthcare market has maintained annually average growth rate above 16 % since 1990s. Among them, medical devices represented dynamical growth since 2000s. By 2013, total value of medical devices on Chinese healthcare market has reached 179 billion RMB (about 29 billion US dollars). Medical devices have been widely used in the process of disease prevention, diagnosis, therapy, care and rehabilitation. On the Chinese medical device market, imported medical devices made by overseas and multinational medical device manufacturers account for about a half, in which the high-tech and high-valued medical devices, such as magnetic resonance imaging, CT are almost monopolized by GE, Siemens, Philips and other overseas and multinational companies. It is estimated that Chinese medical device market will be likely to be more than 340 billion RMB (about 57 billion US dollars) by 2015, and will surpass Japan to become the second largest medical device market behind the United States. The Chinese medical device market is one of segment market of the most growth potentiality, which is attracting more and more overseas medical device manufacturers and producers to penetrate such market.



China’s radical change of regulatory framework for medical devices brings overseas and multinational medical device manufacturers the maximum challenges and opportunities. Those overseas medical devices have not been granted the certificate of marketing authorization of medical device issued by the government authorities of the country or region of origin have been intercepted outside the door of Chinese clinical trial market not only, and be blocked outside the door of Chinese medical device market also. Nonetheless, Chinese authorities relaxed the admittance license of overseas medical devices. The overseas medical device manufacturer exporting Class I medical devices into China only need to file the archives and the certificate of marketing authorization of the government authorities of the country or region of origin to the CFDA for recordation. The overseas medical device manufacturer exporting Class II and Class III medical devices into China should be subject to be examined and approved by the CFDA. The Chinese authorities will strengthen the supervision and administration for medical devices, including their registration, production, distribution and use. How do you in compliance with the latest Chinese regulations on medical devices? How do you operate business smoothly in China?
