nmpa standards october guidelines

Thirty four industry standards for medical devices were issued by the NMPA on October 22, 2020. These were put in place to guide manufacturers for local type testing, clinical trials, and regulatory approval. The standards cover indications of orthopedic, cardiovascular, general hospital, and so on.

NMPA Standards for October 2020

Surveillance for orthopedic products is becoming more and more stringent in China considering nearly 20% of the standards are related to orthopedics. China Med Device, LLC can help you evaluate the gap between your products and China guidelines or standards.
