What are the Implications

Whether you are renewing or submitting new registration, your medical devices and IVDs need to meet these new guidelines. Even if your renewals (every five years required by NMPA) have no changes, you still have to prove that your originally approved products can meet the new guidelines. 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 regulation.
