22 Class II Medical Device Guidelines March 2021 – Ask for Feedback


The NMPA published “Guidelines Revisions for 22 Class II Medical Devices” on March 17, 2021. Feedback needs to be submitted by April 17, 2021.

It is responding to the “2021 Medical Device Guidelines Revisions Plan” released on February 9, 2021, in which 51 guidelines were affected. The revisions are aimed to facilitate manufacturers with local type testing and regulatory filling and make guidelines more consistent with the international counterparts.

Importance of Medical Device Guidelines March 2021

The guidelines are prepared by the NMPA’s Center of Medical Device Evaluation (CMDE) and local testing centers. 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 starting March 2021. Even if renewals (required every 5 years by the 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.
