55 Standards Released in One Day


nmpa guidelines for nanomaterials

The NMPA released 55 revised or newly established medical device standards on May 18, 2022, with indications ranging from cardiovascular, plastic surgery, oncology, clinical chemistry and immunology, etc. The Standards Revisions are aimed to facilitate manufacturers with local type testing and regulatory submission and make standards more consistent with the international standards.

Legally Binding

Industry Mandatory Standards are legally enforced. Decree 739 Regulation on Supervision and Management of Medical Devices, the highest law governing medical device industry in China, mandates that “medical device shall meet the national mandatory standards; if there are no national mandatory standards, they shall comply with the industry mandatory standards”.

The industry recommended standards are not legally binding but recommended by regulatory authorities.

Huge Impact

Whether you are renewing or submitting new registration, your medical devices need to meet these new standards. Even if your renewals (every 5 years required by the NMPA) have no changes, you still have to prove that your originally approved products can meet the new standards. 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 standards. 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.
