General Information of How to Record/Register Your Medical Devices and Prepare Technical Dossiers in NMPA

General Information

In 2013, after China officially joined the International Medical Device Regulators Forum (IMDRF), National Medical Products Administration (NMPA, former CFDA) issued the “Regulations on the Legislative Procedures of the State Food and Drug Administration” for the purpose of integrating with the international mainstream and better catching up with the development of the medical device industry. This regulation is issued to standardize the legislative process, ensure the quality of legislation, and improve the efficiency of legislation. Based on this rule,NMPA issued a new “Regulation on the Supervision and Administration of Medical Devices” in 2014 and revised it in 2017.

To guarantee the safety and effectiveness of medical devices, any foreign enterprise engaged in the manufacture, preparation, propagation, compounding, or processing of a medical device imported into theChina and wants to record or register their products in China, must conduct the record keeping or registration in accordance with the<Regulations for the Supervision and Administration of Medical Device>issued by NMPA.

The “market approval” released by your national government is necessary for the imported medical device, which is a legal proof/certificate/license demonstrates that your product is approved to be sold as a medical device in the market of your country.

For Class Ⅰ medical device, you shall implement the record keeping; while for ClassⅡ&Ⅲmedical device, you shall implement the registration. Either the record keeping or the registration is in the charge of NMPA(orginal CFDA).The general required preparation dossiers would include:security risk evaluation report, product standard (technical requirement), product testing, clinical evaluation report, manual and label, quality management system etc

You can see below to find detailed preparation dossiers for record/registration procedure.
