On March 12, 2021, the NMPA issued a notice regarding Medical Device Master Files Register. Read more information on that notice.

Medical device master file in China is a technical document that owner of the file submits to NMPA Center of Medical Device Evaluation (CMDE) to authorize the applicant to use in the medical device registration but does not directly disclose the content to the applicant. The purpose of the medical device master file is to protect the technical secrets of the documents’ owner and to avoid the repeated submission of the same technical documents by different parties.

Legal representative will play a big role in the master files for overseas device applicants and owners. Authorizing a legal agent is a must for foreign manufacturers to communicate filling process and renew master files in time. The owners of master file shall specify the name, address, contact and authorized authority for the legal representative.
