Mandatory Standards

Whether you are renewing or submitting new registration, your medical devices need to meet new mandatory standards. Even if your renewals (every 5 years required by NMPA) have no changes, you still have to prove that your originally approved products can meet the new standards. As a result, your originally approved products will still need to go through local type testing to show that you are current with the new standards.

China Med Device, LLC has test engineers on-site at NMPA testing centers to help you assess and expedite your type testing needs and shorten your renewal or new approval time.
