CFDA’s Name is Disappearing as China Announces Cabinet Reshuffle Plan

China State Council on Tuesday released a massive cabinet reshuffle plan to make the government better-structured, more efficient, and service-oriented. CFDA, along with Administration for Industry & Commerce, and Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine, will be reconstructed to National Market Supervision Administration.

The integration of three administrations will strengthen the government’s functions on supervision of medical device market. Registration and approval process is to be streamlined; More timely and standardized inspection and post-market surveillance could be expected under the consolidation of power.
