34 NMPA Guidelines issued in December 2021


nmpa guidelines for nanomaterials

The NMPA published 34 guidelines in December 2021, involving provisions on clinical trials, same-variety comparison, and regulatory review for a wide range of indications.

Significantly referred to many FDA guidance, these documents are aimed to make NMPA regulations more consistent with international standards.

Importance of Device Guideline

The guidelines are prepared by NMPA Center of Medical Device Evaluation (CMDE). It is not legally binding but highly recommended by regulatory authorities.

For both renewals and new registrations, medical devices need to meet these new guidelines. Even if renewals (every 5 years required by NMPA) have no changes, manufacturers still have to prove that the originally approved products can meet the new guidelines.

As a result, approved products still need to go through local type testing to show that they are current with these new requirements. China Med Device, LLC has test engineers at NMPA testing centers to help you assess and expedite your type testing needs and shorten your renewal or new approval time.
