CFDA Medical Device Classification Catalog draft was published August 31, 2017. A year later, it became effective on August 1, 2018. New registration application after August 1, should follow the new classifications. After the release of the initial Catalog in 2002, CFDA has made several modifications to standardize the classification and streamline the registration process. The new Catalog is the result of several years efforts.
The new Catalog specifies that “classifications should be based on the Device Category, Subcategory, Example of Device Names, Product Description and Intended Use.” Compared with the previous catalog, key changes are:
IVDs and Companion Diagnostics are not included in the new medical device Catalog.
