Dealing with Chinese Medical Device Regulatory Authorities: Insider Tips from a China Expert
Doing business in China, or planning to? Here’s our best advice:
Forget everything you know.
Take China’s “FDA.” It’s an FDA in name only, principally in charge of marketing authorization. Actual device regulation is carried out by regional and local governments ... of which there are more than three thousand.
To American eyes, the Chinese regulatory system is ... well, a Chinese puzzle. You can’t hope to get a registration approved without a knowledgeable and trustworthy local guide.
But how do you find such a guide? Which regional or local agencies must you deal with ... and which can you safely ignore? Do you still need to obtain marketing authorization from your home country, or has that onerous requirement been abolished under new regulations?
Face it: You need expert help. And we’ve got just the expert to help you.
